DL DJ Jones of Wren and East Mississippi JC spent Saturday in the rain at Florida State. And loved it. Jones is a Seminole commitment and he made another trip to Tallahassee to soak in the atmosphere and talk more with Jimbo Fisher and the defensive coaches.
"Finally got to see a game, so that's a plus," Jones said. "I talked to coach Fisher, my main recruiter Jay Graham, D-line coach Odell Hagins, talked to them a pretty good bit. Coach Fisher was telling before the game how bad he needed me, and after game he was telling me how bad he needed me."
Despite his long standing commitment to the Seminoles, Jones is still looking around with USC, Ole Miss, Auburn and Alabama remaining on his list as well.
"I'll probably let people know how I feel after this (official) visit to Ole Miss (this weekend)," Jones said. "As of right now it's still the same."
Never miss a local story.
Jones returned to Mississippi after the game and will head to his home in the Upstate Tuesday. He plans to visit USC one day this week but hasn't finalized the day. He has also taken an official visit to USC and one to Auburn.
Jones is on track to graduate in December and will sign during the mid-year signing period which begins December 17th and runs thru January 15th.
