A few hours after committing, Julian Good-Jones was receiving extra attention from offensive line…
Cyclones, Wildcats Vying For 2015 OT
Cedar Rapids (IA) Washington offensive tackle Julian Good-Jones collected his second scholarship offer of his recruitment recently after a strong camp performance in front of the Kansas State coaching staff. The offer did not come as a surprise for the Iowa native. "I kind of had the feeling it was going to come because they had told me they liked me a lot," Good-Jones said. "I had just visited their campus the day before. It felt really good to receive it. They're a top 25 program so that's really awesome that I can get an offer from them. It's a great school." "They offered me at the camp," he added. "They wanted to see me there perform. They already liked me but wanted to verify it, so to speak. They needed to see me work." Julian Good-Jones. He shared what Kansas State liked about his game. "They liked my athleticism," Good-Jones stated. "They liked how I can move and how mobile I was. I'm a leaner guy, and not a massive one. I'm quicker and that's what they're looking for at offensive tackle." The Wildcats had Good-Jones on campus in Manhattan the day before he earned his offer at their Kansas City satellite camp. He was impressed with what he saw of the Kansas State campus. "The campus was really cool," Good-Jones noted. "Everything is limestone there so that was neat. I hadn't seen anything like it before. I saw the facilities and they were pretty good. The new facilities will be built in about a year. I saw the pictures of what it will look like and that was great to see." The Cyclones are the other program that has offered Good-Jones, and he has not forgot about them. "I really like the coaching staff at Iowa State," he mentioned. "I really like Coach Rhoads, and I like Coach Blaney a lot, too. The fact that they offered me and didn't have to see me at camp, didn't have any doubts about me, makes a big difference to me. I like that a lot about them." "I haven't spoke with them since the Kansas State offer came but they always emphasize how much they believe in me," Good-Jones continued. "They think I can be a starter early on in my college career." Good-Jones was invited to the Iowa State camp on June 21st but will be unable to attend it as he'll be on vacation. He does have plans for a return trip to Ames, though. "I'll be headed out there for a camp on July 25," he told Scout. "They have a camp then and I'll be competing in it." He could make another stop before that visit to camp with the Cyclones. "If I camp at Northern Illinois or Minnesota, I think they'd both offer," he pointed out. "I don't know if I will get them without going to camp. I might camp at both spots, but I'm still undecided. The Minnesota camp is the weekend before the one at Iowa State at the end of July." The rising senior offensive tackle is still unsure of when he will be ready to make his college decision. "I still don't have a timeframe for when I want to pick a school by," Good-Jones clarified. "I don't know when I can get it done by. I'm not done looking at all the schools looking at me. There's still more research and more things I have to compare to really be ready to make that kind of choice."
