DL DJ Jones of East Mississippi JC and Wren High School committed to Florida State in July after a visit to Tallahassee and has remained well off the recruiting radar since then. But Wednesday night he said he's far from finished with recruiting.

Jones said he was on the phone Tuesday with his recruiters from USC and Clemson and he will take official visits to both. He has set his visit with USC for the Georgia weekend September 13th. His date for the Clemson visit has not been determined.

Asked to qualify the strength of his commitment to Florida State, Jones said: "About medium. Still trying to feel some teams out, including FSU."

Jones had 4 tackles in East Mississippi's season opening win last week. USC commitment DL Dante Sawyer had 1 tackle. And former Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly completed 31 of 38 passes for 385 yards and 4 touchdowns.
