DL JD Jones (6-3 285) of Cartersville, GA visited USC earlier this summer and remains under evaluation by the Gamecocks. "I haven't heard much from them since the camp," Jones said. "They want to see me play on defense this season."
Jones has played mostly on the offense line but the colleges like him for defense. He has offers from Tennessee, Arkansas, Middle Tennessee, Illinois State, Furman, Western Carolina, Troy and Memphis.
He's favoring Tennessee. "They are showing the most interest," he said. "They like me on both sides of the ball. I went to camp there and worked on both sides."
Jones is also drawing interest from Auburn and Georgia Tech. He said he would be interested in USC if they got back in touch. He wants to play in the SEC.
