Played middle linebacker for the most part as a senior. Is a violent hitter who also wraps up. Has the speed to spy mobile quarterbacks and track running backs down from behind. Quick and fast enough to get past blocks and into the backfield. Big enough to handle run stopping in high school.
Urban Meyer is expecting Jones to play this season. He will need to add some weight, but can likely contribute on special teams immediately. He will eventually play the walkout linebacker position, but will enter fall camp behind Chris Worley and Jerome Baker. Tremendous potential. Like Darron Lee, Baker and Worley, he could also play the Will eventually.
