Posted Dec 20, 2008's #16 nationally rated WLB received 1st Team All-District recognition Wednesday but is still waiting on the state awards to come out. Jones finished out the season with 81 tackles, 17 tackles for losses, and 12 sacks.

"I played pretty well considering I missed the first three games with a bad ankle," added Tahj Jones. "By the end of the season, I was my old self."

Jones holds offers from LSU, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Arkansas, and several more but the Tigers and Rebels were the only ones who were actively recruiting Tahj until this week.

"TCU came by the school. Their coach told me that he had to go back and talk to his head coach about getting me a scholarship, but I have not heard anything yet. It should be any day."

What does Jones know about the Hornfrogs?

"Really, I do not know anything about them. If I go up there on a visit, I will learn more about them."

Which visits does the Sulpur standout have lined up?

"I am going to LSU January 16th and Ole Miss on the (January) 23rd. That is it so far."

Anymore schools in the picture?

"That is it, basically LSU and Ole Miss. Well, and maybe TCU."

What stands out about LSU?

"Well, basically their staff. I like Coach Peveto. He is cool."

And Ole Miss?

"The same thing. I am cool with Coach Dameron. We cool too."

What will be the deciding factors between the two schools?

"Who ever can get me on the field the quickest. That is basically what the deciding factor is going to come down to, who ever can get me on the field the quickest."
