The Vanderbilt Coaching Staff has been keeping very close tabs on Heritage High DE/TE Justin Jones.…
Georgia TE sets first official
"I'm not ready to name a leader just yet, but I will say that I'm looking to play in the SEC," Justin Jones stated. "It will more than likely be an SEC school that I sign in. The SEC gives me the best chance to play at the next level." "The SEC is the greatest conference in the nation. It's the fastest conference. It's the most competitive conference. The strength of the conference is incredible. As of now, I wanna play in the SEC." The big man has scheduled one official visit. "I'll be at Vanderbilt January the 30th," he said. "That's all I have now. I'm trying to get in touch with Coach Cooper at South Carolina. I plan on taking an official there. As of now, I'm not sure of any other visits." Jones has been projected as a tight end on the next level, but he played the majority of his senior season on the defensive side of the ball. "This season I didn't really play that much at tight end," he commented. "I came in mainly for blocking situations. That was about it as far as offense goes." "At defensive end I had 72 tackles, 10.5 sacks, three batted down passes, 22 tackles for a loss, four forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, and one fumble recovery for a touchdown," he reported. "That was through 10 games. This was my first year at defensive end." Are schools talking with Jones about playing on the defensive line? "Yes," he said. "Coaches have told me I have a good frame for a defensive end. When I went to South Carolina they told me I could play on either side of the ball. South Carolina actually talked to me more about defense. They said that they liked a lot of things they saw on my video." The Commodores are waiting for test scores. "Vanderbilt hasn't offered yet, but I'll know about an offer when my test scores come in," Jones said. "After those scores come in I believe they'll offer me."
