Jones spends Saturday checking out Clemson

May 17, 2014 

DL DJ Jones of East Mississippi JC and Wren High school spent much of Saturday at Clemson for his latest unofficial visit. His mother and cousin joined him on the visit. Jones has also been to Tennessee and USC while home on break and will visit Auburn Sunday. That will be his final unofficial visit before returning to school.

Jones said he spent most of his time at Clemson with the defensive coaches talking defensive football.

"I had a chance to sit down with them and talk about the scheme and watch some film," Jones said. "I'm doing a lot more of that with the coaches. They showed me film of a lot of stunts and I watched a lot of film on Grady Jarrett. Clemson is known as an offensive school but the defensive staff is great and they are capable of being in the SEC."

Friday night Jones put out his top ten list and Clemson was one of the ten. He said the visit just reinforced his earlier opinion about the Tigers.

"It just showed me that they did belong in that ten."

Jones does not have favorites among his ten and will take his official visits in the fall. He said Tennessee is the only definite official visit he has right now.
