Springdale Linebacker Sets Official Visit
"The season went okay," said Jamie Jones from Springdale, (Ark.). "It didn't go as good as planned. I lost about 20 pounds before the season began. I got a bad infection at the Hoover passing tournament. I wasn't 100-percent until towards the end of the season." "I ended up playing in all the games. We finished the season 6-4, and we didn't make the play-offs. I had over 800 yards rushing on four real good games. On defense, I ended up with over 70 tackles. I had two interceptions and returned one for a touchdown." Jones has scheduled one official visit and is talking to a couple of other SEC schools about visits as well. "I have an official visit scheduled to Mississippi State for January 26," he said. "I will probably visit Ole Miss and Kentucky as well. I am talking to Auburn and a few other schools. They are waiting to see my ACT score." Jones talks about the Mississippi State Bulldogs and what he will look when he begins his official visits. "I haven't been to Mississippi State before, but I have been told it's a good place," he said. "I like coach [J.B.] Grimes a lot. The coaches are down to earth. The campus and the stadium is real nice. I just really like them." . "When I start taking my visits I am going to see how hard the coaches are on the players about going to class. I am going to need someone to stay on me about that. I want to be in a good environment. I want to see how everything is run." When asked of scholarship offers and favorites Jones replied, "I haven't received any new offers. All the schools are really waiting for my ACT score. My coach said he has received calls from Nebraska, Miami and Missouri Southern." "I don't have any favorites. I am not trying to hold up too much longer on my decision. I am trying to see what all is out there. Hopefully I will be able to make my decision after Christmas break." Stay tuned to Scout.com as we approach the heat of the recruiting season.
