A slew of offers to the nation’s elite seems to be the tone early in the 2015-16 recruiting cycle. Look no further than Oregon’s recent nod to hard-hitting safety Brandon Jones (4-Star/Nacogdoches, TX/Rivals100).
“I’ve been waiting on that one (offer) for a while,” said Jones. “… I already know Oregon will be in my top five when I put that out there. They are already in that group. I’ve dreamed of an Oregon offer since I was in the seventh grade.”
At 5-foot-10, 185 lbs., Jones plays above his height and consistently mixes it up in the passing lanes. No stranger to contact, Jones is the type of opportunistic defensive back that epitomizes Oregon’s deep coverage.
“I know I want to visit Oregon. I might go up with (Oregon QB commit) Seth Green (4-Star/Allen, Texas) if he goes up. He’s been recruiting me for a while and we’ve gotten close. If I get invited to ‘The Opening’ we might go up early or stay longer and visit Oregon then too… it’s definitely an important visit for me.”
Package deal anyone? Stay tuned, WTD!!!
