5/17 Kansas JUCO Report: Part 1

DT Ulric Jones

The first of a two-part Kansas junior college report for this week highlights prospects at Butler, Coffeyville, and Dodge City Community Colleges.

This week's Kansas junior college report focuses on where the top prospects are leaning, new prospects to keep an eye on, and wraps up the offers that occurred in the last seven days.

Part one details prospects at Butler, Coffeyville, and Dodge City Community Colleges.


Davon Durant. The athletic linebacker that was at one time one of the top prospects in the country for his recruiting class is now emerging on the radar once again for several teams. He holds several offers, including ones from Arizona State, Arkansas, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kansas State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Missouri, South Carolina, Texas A&M, USC, and Washington.

The only knock against Durant in high school was his smaller size, as his speed and athleticism were unquestionably his strengths. He's bulked up, to the tune of 240 pounds, and is more of a downhill player. Texas A&M and South Carolina are the schools to watch in regards to where he could wind up.

Ulric Jones. The three-star defensive tackle, formerly of Oxford, Alabama, is another prime prospect in the junior college ranks. He's a bit of a rare breed at the position, coming in at 6-foot-7.

His stock has blossomed as well and the frontrunners at this time may be Texas A&M, South Carolina, and Georgia. The Bulldogs have yet to offer but have shown considerable interest.


Wesley Bailey. He's now prominently ranked amongst the top junior college prospects, and rightfully so. The long, lean 6-foot-2 cornerback has the athletic ability to lock up anyone that stands across from him. His recruitment continues to take shape, but as of now California and Texas Tech are the two schools he's connected with the most. An offer from either could impact his process in a significant way.

Timmy Hamilton. He's another prospect that is a new addition to the rankings of the junior college recruits. He has 11 offers, picking up scholarships from Arizona and Illinois most recently. They won't be his last. Both schools should figure prominently for him throughout the recruiting cycle.

TRE"MAINE LIGHTFOOT. The Coffeyville linebacker is someone to remember as the 2015 recruiting cycle progresses on. His recruitment hasn't taken off in a significant way yet, but it could. He looks the part of a linebacker at the next level, as Lightfoot stands at 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds. He originally signed with Louisiana-Lafayette and other programs are beginning to hover.


Josh Williams. A Florida native, junior college middle linebacker Josh Williams is part of a bit of an unusual recruitment at this time. He's being recruited by some schools as a 2015 prospect, but by others as a 2014 recruit because he's already an NCAA qualifier.

Arkansas and Colorado are the main two programs that have taken an interest in Williams to be a member of their 2014 signing classes. More should be known regarding that situation in the next few weeks. The Razorbacks can accept all the academic work that Williams has completed and are just waiting on his results from the past semester to finalize his eligibility for this fall.

If everything checks out as planned, the Dodge City linebacker could be playing in the SEC by this Fall.
