An explosive runner from Charlotte, N.C., Jones has the combination of size, power and speed to be a 3-down runner at the next level. During his final season at Charlotte Christian High School, Jones finished with 1,542 total yards and 19 total touchdowns.
Nebraska, which continues to be on a warpath under new head coach Matt Rhule, was one of 2 primary B1G schools in the running for Jones during the recruiting cycle. Michigan State was also in the running for Jones’ services, but talks have since cooled since the start of the regular season. Jones also held offers from West Virginia, Miami, and North Carolina.
According to On3 Sports, Georgia is the favorite to land Jones at 79.3%. Nebraska has surpassed N.C. State in terms of the crystal ball rankings, coming in at 16.8%.
