Memphis Tour: Harrison Jones
"I have offers from Florida State, North Carolina, Alabama and Stanford," said Harrison Jones. "Stanford offer came first. All the offers are exciting. The order doesn't matter." "It's exciting to get an offer from any school to futher my career in football. I am taking some visits and seeing where I fit in comfortable." "Florida State offered me just a few days ago. It was real exciting to get an offer from them. It was good because Florida State is a good program, and they have good coaching. I haven't talked to any of their coaches yet." Jones holds four scholarship offers and receiving interest from Georgia, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Kentucky, LSU, Clemson and Oregon as well. He plans to attend the Alabama A-Day game April 18 and hopes to visit Vanderbilt. "I am not really picking any favorites yet," Jones said. "I am doing what I can by getting in shape and getting my skills better. I would like to see who all I get offers from, narrow it down by the end of the summer, and hopefully make my decision." "It's important to have a good football program and a strong relationship with the coaches. I really just want to go where I feel most comfortable and at home. I want to find a place who wants me." The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect understands the tight end position which is used in a variety of ways. "There can be blocking tight ends, receiving tight ends, and then you have your H-backs," Jones said. "There is really a lot of different things a tight end can do now. They don't just do one thing. I feel like I am one of those hybrid tight ends." "I run track right now. I am working on my speed and being in shape in general. Hopefully, I can improve my 40-time. I am working out four-five days a week. I am trying to get stronger, bigger and faster. I am trying to improve my route running as well." Barrett Jones, Harrison's older brother, signed with Alabama in 2008 as a part of the No. 1 recruiting class in the country. Barrett offers words of experience for his little brother. "Of course he tells me how great Alabama is and how fun it is, but what he mostly gave me was to go where I feel most comfortable spending the next four years of my college life," Jones said. "He has told me how rough it can be. Everywhere has the nice buildings and nice weight rooms, but you have to find where you feel most comfortable."
