Arizona has received a verbal from a defensive lineman.
Recruiting: Midwest City's Jones Impressive
His stats are impressive as he has 82 total tackles with 48 of those unassisted, and he has 18 tackles for loss, and five sacks. He also has a fumble forced and last week against Putnam City, early in the game, he sat back on a screen pass and picked it off then returned it 57 yards for the touchdown. The 6-1, 295-pound Jones was trucking and the Pirates, even their skill players, weren't making up much ground on the big man.
"Yeah, my cousin said, 'you want to play wide receiver now?'" said Jones laughing. "I said that I wasn't interested in being a wide receiver but that I wouldn't mind taking another to the house. It was fun. It was a lot of fun."
Midwest City football is fun these days as Jones and his teammates are 5-0 in district play and tuning up for the playoffs with a second to last regular season game on Friday hosting longtime Mid-State Conference rival Norman.
ones said he is focused on the Bombers and their anticipated playoff run, but he did update us on recruiting.
"It is mainly Missouri, Kansas State, and Arizona," said Jones when asked the schools he is hearing from the most. "All three of those schools have offered and they are calling a lot.
"I just got off the phone with Coach (Bill) Young at Oklahoma State. He was just talking and telling me he hoped I would come up for the OSU-Texas game this weekend. I am going to go up for that game."
Asked whether he grew up a fan of either school or which school he roots for, Jones gave an honest but diplomatic answer. "My dad and my cousin are OSU fans," said Jones. "Now the other side of the family, they are OU fans, so I kind of stayed in between."
