The 10th offer has arrived for Nacogdoches (Tx.) 2016 safety standout Brandon Jones.
Jones tweeted the news of his latest offer just after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
"Just got offered by Washington State!" he said.
Not only is Washington State the first Pac-12 program to offer the 6-foot, 190-pound Jones, the Cougars are the first team west of Lubbock to offer him.
Half of Jones' offers come from the Big 12: Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, and Texas Tech. He holds three SEC offers from LSU, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M. Reigning ACC and national champion Florida State has also offered Jones.
After starting the majority of his freshman year in 2012, Jones had a breakout season this past fall as a sophomore. He finished with 95 tackles, five interceptions, one interception return touchdown, and two punt return scores to help lead Nacogdoches to a 7-4 record and its second playoff berth since 1992.
Jones possesses elite speed and athleticism and combines them with an overtly physical nature that makes him a violent hitter from his safety spot. He will likely be among the state's top recruits in the 2016 class.
Jones is one of only two 2016 East Texans with an offer. Athens cornerback Travon Fuller recently joined Jones as an official FBS target when Texas A&M offered him this past week.
Jones will join 2015 cornerback Jaylon Lane, a Nacogdoches native who played the last three years at San Angelo (Tx.) Central, in the Nacogdoches secondary this fall. Lane has picked up six new offers since Monday and now holds 14 overall.
