2014 RB Jeff Jones, out of Minnesota, turned alot of heads yesterday afternoon with dazzling speed on the edge and a playmaking ability that was almost second to none in the RB category of the game. Jones stuck out to alot of fans and left alot of us asking why Michigan hadn’t offered.
With that, this afternoon, Coach Hoke and Staff offered Jones and a visit date now appears imminent for this month. Jones, one of the top players in the Midwest was viewed as being down to Florida and Minnesota, while being committed to the Gophers. With his play, Jones seems to be a hot commodity in the nation of recruiting right now and a guy who may see a flurry of late offers in due time.
With a month remaining until NSD and few spots left in the 2014 class for the Wolverines, Jones is a top target. Head man of the class, Wilton Speight has been in his ear already and when watching the game yesterday it was seen that Speight was talking to Jones frequently on the sideline from my view on TV, especially in the fourth quarter. Speight and Michael Ferns have been hot on the recruiting trail for the university in the time they have been committed and have an ability to make noise on and off the field.
I mentioned here that I believe that if all goes well on his visit to Ann Arbor that Jones could flip, and at this point I would deem it very possible.
Jones would bring a dynamic of playmaking that Michigan needs and be a form of excellent competition for Green and Smith in Ann Arbor. You gotta admit though, Jones and Speight looked really nice as a team tomorrow, perhaps it could be a sign of things to come?
