Status
Jack Jones, a Tennessee native, grew up longing to play for the Vols. When Butch Jones offered Jack last May, he publicly committed just two days later. Since he committed to Tennessee, Jones has picked up offers from Alabama, Ole Miss, Auburn, Georgia and a host of other programs. Jones has visited Knoxville at least half a dozen times since his commitment over a year ago and, even with his rising stock, remains firmly committed to Tennessee.

 How He Fits

Jones is ahead of the curve with his footwork and initial quickness and should play offensive tackle in college. He has the frame to add additional bulk and already demonstrates excellent upper and lower body strength. Mentally, he plays with a nasty edge and simply isn’t outworked on the field. He excels at run blocking and quickly attacks opposing linemen. Jones has the ability to be a great pass blocker, but needs to continue to refine his mechanics. Overall, he’s an excellent athlete with an SEC frame. The Vols are thin along the offensive line and Jones should be in the two-deep when he steps on campus in 2015.
