Jones is a 4-star offensive tackle recruit from Georgia. He’s Michigan’s second blue-chip offensive line commit, joining Nolan Rumler. He stands tall at 6-foot-6, 282 pounds, and attends Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga. Jones also had offers from Texas A&M, Tennessee, Auburn, Arkansas and Indiana, to name a few schools.
Michigan only signed one offensive lineman recruit in the Class of 2018, 4-star tackle Jalen Mayfield, so Jones’ commitment comes as a position of need. The Wolverines are also hoping to add grad transfer tackle Calvin Anderson to their roster for 2018.
His commitment is verbal until National Signing Day next winter, a rule Michigan fans are familiar with. Otis Reese, Michigan’s top verbal commit, flipped to Georgia on National Signing Day earlier this month.
Michigan’s other verbal commits are: 5-star DE Chris Hinton, 4-star DE Stephen Herron Jr., Rumler and 3-star LB Charles Thomas.
