- Hearing the most from Tennessee, Florida State, Virginia, NC State & North Carolina. Plans on visiting Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio State & possibly Michigan in the fall.
Maybe it’s only appropriate that one of the state’s biggest recruiting mysteries, Cortez McDowell, wants to solve mysteries for a post-football career.
“I want to major in Criminology and work for the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency),” McDowell told the AJC on Wednesday when asked about his college plans.
And why? “I just want to clean up the streets some.”
The streets will be a safer place if the 4-star from Locust Grove High School attacks them with the same excellence as he does football out of the defensive secondary:
Jones Ends the Suspense (Scout)
After getting down to a final three of Michigan State, Ohio State and Michigan, Chicago De La Salle (Ill.) four-star offensive tackle Jamarco Jones made his commitment official at a press conference at his school today.
Jamarco Jones kept his recruitment fairly close to his vest, but today, the world knows he will be a Buckeye. After taking visits to his final three, Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State, he decided that Columbus would be his home.
"I have decided to continue my academic and athletic career at Ohio State," he said. "I went back and forth for several weeks, and I switched my decision twice. I made the final decision yesterday."
One of the top prospects in the Midwest, Jones is a four-star, the nation's number six offensive tackle, and also a great student in the classroom.
The Buckeyes have been on a roll as of lately when it comes to closing at recruiting. The Bucks have landed three top prospects recently in defensive end Jalyn Holmes, quarterback Stephen Collier, and Terry McLaurin and now this afternoon have a very good shot at landing offensive tackle Jamarco Jones. Jones is ranked a 4-star recruit out of the Chicago, Illinois area and is considered a Top 10 lineman in the Class of 2014. Jones will announce his choice between Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State during a ceremony this afternoon at 2 p.m. eastern time at his high school. Jones also had offers from Florida, Notre Dame and UCLA to name a few.
Jones had this to say about picking one of these schools:
"It's tough picking between these schools, but I am ready to get this over with and go back to being a normal kid," Jones said. "It was made a little easier once I decided to stay in the Midwest."
