Jeff Jones, newly found Michigan top RB target to round out the 2014 class has set a visit for January 31st to Ann Arbor according to Kyle Goblirsch of 247 Sports.
Jones, a 4* RB out of Minnesota, and current Minnesota absolutely blew up at the Under Armour All American Game, and looked pretty good in the backfield next to QB Wilton Speight. Also of note is the fact that after the game Speight touched base with Jones and after the offer Speight put on the recruiting hat that had been shown all through the fall in helping to construct the class along with several other commits. The feeling I get from the commits is that they believe Jones could flip, but they also are willing to admit that at this point anything could happen.
At this point, I feel as if the race for Jones is really down to Minnesota and Michigan. Originally Michigan had backed off because of academics but Jones was able to get his grades up and now finds himself as the key guy for Michigan in rounding out the 2014 class, along with Malik McDowell. I see the chances as, at this point, a 50/50 shot. I believe that if all goes well on the visit, Michigan will find its RB for the 2014 class, and a damn good one at that who can provide a great deal of competition to Derrick Green and Deveon Smith this summer.
Stay optimistic and as always.. GO BLUE!
