"I think my junior season went pretty well. I had 162 tackles, so it was a pretty good real first season of playing that position. I think I most improved in staying focused for the whole game and playing faster," he said.
The 6-foot, 215-pound Jones, who throws shot put for the track team, caught the attention of a few college programs, who are recruiting him as an inside backer.
The athlete has also had the chance to check out a few programs.
"I went to Baylor and Texas State junior days and Houston is supposed to invite me to theirs soon," he said.
Jones, who is being recruited by Bears safeties coach Brian Norwood, says he really enjoyed his time on campus.
"I think Baylor was a good because it had a small group of kids that they were looking at, so I felt like they liked me more," he said.
He has ties to another in-state program, as his father used to play ball for TCU, and is hoping to hear more from the Frogs.
"Clay Jennings was our recruiting coordinator, so I haven't talked to them since he left for Arkansas. But it's definitely a school I am interested in," he said.
"I like their programs and I think I fit their mode of defense, playing physical and fast. They love to hit and I love to hit, too. I just thing I fit there," he said.
Next up for the athlete is the Nike Football Training Camp in Dallas in April.
