Coffeyville lands Ole Miss bounceback
Jones and a teammate, LB Clarence Jackson, were arrested for public drunkenness and dismissed by head coach Houston Nutt in May so with his future in football on the brink, Jones decided to take the JC route in order to get things back on track.
"Coffeyville's coaches were cool and I wanted a place that was good at getting guys placed," Jones noted. "I got here about a month ago and I've been working with the team and we started two-a-days last week, so we're getting ready for the season and I'm just ready to put the past behind me."
With his long, lean frame and quick first step, Jones, who prepped at Miami (Fla.) Palmetto High School, had offers from schools across the country including Tennessee, USC, Louisville, LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Florida State among others.
This time around, Jones said he's still waiting for schools to realize he is no longer at Ole Miss and hoping a fast start to the season will garner him some attention.
"I need to get off to a fast start," Jones said. "I'm set to play the weakside spot at defensive end and I've heard from USC, Louisville and Pitt so far.
"I think when coaches realize that I'm available again and they see that I've changed some things and gotten focused on the right things, they will come and look at me closer."
Because he falls under the "4-2-4 Rule", Jones must get his AA degree before he can enroll at a four year school. He's ahead on his coursework and said he hopes to sign with a school in December and then enroll for spring quarter depending on which school he ends up with.
Wherever he ends up, Jones will have three years to play two following the 2011 football season.
