We already knew Taiwan Jones could do a lot of things on the field, but the Anchor Bay star has done some great things off the field for Michigan State, as he has gotten in on the recruiting game.
"I talked to Ed Davis and I'm talking to DeAnthony Arnett right now," he said.
Jones says he has gone from 205-lbs at the end of last season to a solid 220-lbs now. At that size, he will line up at multiple spots for the Tars.
"We decided to shake it up and try to get him the ball," Anchor Bay offensive coordinator Darryl Johnson said, "as far as split, even a little fullback, quarterback. On defense, we'll play him where we need him. This year we're looking to let him have some fun. It's his senior year."
The Spartans will look to play Jones on defense, but the exact spot is still up in the air.
"Outside linebacker or safety, wherever they need me. As long as I play, it's fine."
That team first attitude is among the many things Johnson says Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio and the rest of the Spartan staff have to look forward to,.
"They're getting a really good athlete with a great attitude, real modest, comes from a very good family. He's the type of athlete that any coach would love to have on their team. because he brings a lot and he loves to learn. He executes 100% no matter what he's doing. He's just a great kid. I love to be around him and I love coaching him."
