Although he has yet to take a visit, White Castle High School’s Jordan Jones has big plans. The junior, who projects as a slot receiver at the next level, has a plethora of trips on his radar within the Big 12, SEC and the MAC.

Schools include TCU, LSU, Mississippi State, Texas, West Virginia and Kent State. Jones has proven to be an asset on the defensive side of the ball as well. Opposing teams can find him at corner and contributing on special teams.

Irish Subway Alum had the opportunity to catchup with Jones.

What type of major would you want to study in college? Business

Which position do you think will fit you best at the Division I level? Slot Receiver

Here’s a long one! On defense, we graded you high on your ability to engage with blockers twice your size and tackling in space. We also graded you high on the ability to get low and put your nose on the football. We see this same type of play from you on special teams, a phase of football we regard very highly! How would you describe the way you play?  I’d describe the way I play as “fearless”. I don’t care who’s in front of me, I’m going to give my all. What I lack in size, I make up with my efforts.

Where do you need to make the biggest improvement in your game? My overall size needs improvement.

What kind of offseason training have you been involved in? All kinds. Dynamic drills, Rivals camps, elite camps, etc.

When would you like to decide which school you will end up at? Sometime this summer.
