Chad Jones (S, Baton Rouge, LA) - Southern Lab made it to the State Semifinals but were upset and finished their season at 11-3.


Scout.com's #5 nationally ranked safety had a large part in Lab's success.

"I had 134 tackles, 12 interceptions and I ran back 4 of them for TD's. I had 11 TD's on offense. I played WR, QB, TE, and RB. On special teams, I ran back 2 for TD's," added Chad Jones.

Any awards?

"I made all of the District, State, and Parish teams, and I am up for Mr. Football with two other players. I forgot their names."

What part of Jones' game improved the most?

"I got better with my cover skills. I had 4 int's last year and 12 this year. I adjusted to the ball better. I read my keys a lot better this season."

Has this talented youngster set up his official visits?

"I am going to USC this weekend (12/15) and FSU (1/12). I will definitely take one to Miami and Florida, and I am not sure about my 5th one yet."

Who is in the running for that 5th visit?

"I would say either Ole Miss or Clemson."

Where does this leave LSU?

"Oh, they are just right down the road. I go over there all of the time. There is no point in me visiting them. I know everything there is to know about them with my brother being on their team and all."

Any recent inhome visits?

"FSU (McKale), Norton (USC), Fisher and Miles (LSU), Wilson (Ole Miss), and Florida's OL coach."

Which inhome visit did he enjoy the most?

"USC's Ken Norton and LSU."

When it comes decision time; what will be the main factors?

"I want to play for a top notch program, and I am a city boy. I do not want to be in a country town. It has to have something going on."

Baseball is just around the corner and Chad is consensus Top 100 high school recruit. What are his thoughts about the draft?

"I am definitely in the Top 3 rounds, but I need a good season to boost my stock to get the money I want. I will get drafted, but I do not know if I will accept it or not. If the money is right, I will. If it is not, I will not."
