Harrison Jones collects SEC offer
The 6-foo-4, 225-pound prospect was offered his first scholarship by head coach Butch Davis, and the last offer has come from head coach Nick Saban. "They came and got me out of class and said that Coach Saban wanted to talk to me," said Harrison Jones. "Coach Saban said the whole staff had watched my film, and they were very impressed with me." "He said I had good size, speed and great hands. He told me not to make a decision based on Barrett [Jones] being there because they didn't let that influence their decision about me." "He offered me a scholarship and told me they really wanted me to be part of the team. I told him thank you so much for giving me such a great opportunity. I am planning to visit Alabama for Junior Day." Jones received another call from an SEC coach about visiting their program. "Coach Nutt also called today and wants me to go to Ole Miss Junior Day on February 28th," he stated. "I am going to take some visits, pray about it, and try to find out where I would best fit in. I want to go somewhere where I can contribute and make a difference." Jones holds three, but the list of offers is expected to increase during the course of the 2010 recruiting cycle. "Alabama, North Carolina and Stanford are the only three schools who have offered me," he said. "I like Georgia and Vanderbilt. I got a letter from Oklahoma today. I like Ole Miss and Tennessee. I don't have any overall favorites right now." Jones talked more about the other two programs who have extended offers. North Carolina: "I like it because they have a great coaching staff. I love coach Haggans, the tight ends coach. It's a real comfortable feel down there. I love the attitude. It's great academics. It's great football. Butch Davis is taking the program in the right direction." Stanford: "They called me the first day they could on September 1 and told me they were going to offer me. They sent it in the mail. I talked to coach Harbaugh a few times and coach White. It's a great program." Jones has almost a year to make his college decision. No need to rush things at this point. "I am not going to make a decision anytime soon," he explained. "I am going to take some visits and check out other programs. I want to see where I feel comfortable."
