DL DJ Jones of East Mississippi JC and Wren High School Sunday night updated his top ten with a top ten listed in order of preference. Jones has Tennessee as his current leader.
"It's because of the long term relationship I've developed with their coaching staff," Jones said. "They've been with me since high school. They've stuck with me. But they're not pulling away. I'm just making that list."
Alabama is second on that list followed by Clemson, USC, Auburn, Southern Cal, Florida State, Ole Miss, Florida and Georgia. Jones said all ten schools remain in the running.
He talked with his USC recruiter Deke Adams earlier on Sunday and he talked with Clemson recruiter Dan Brooks a couple of days ago. He visited both while home last month and probably will revisit when he returns home for July 4th.
Jones said he will take all of his official visits and right now four of those will be to Tennessee, Florida State, Auburn and Southern Cal. He plans to take most of those visits in the summer and wants to make his final decision in early December.
