Atlanta DB picking up steam

Atlanta (Ga.) Booker T. Washington is one of those schools that recruiters know they must inquire about, because the Bulldogs are likely to have one or more Division I prospects. The top prospect for Washington this year is safety Rashad Jones, who already has a Division I offer.
"I got a written offer from Ole Miss a while back," Jones said. "I got one from Oklahoma not too long ago too. My coach tells me that other schools have told him that they were going to offer me, but I haven't gotten them in writing yet."
Jones stands at 6-foot-2, 177 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds. He has played virtually every position in the defensive backfield for the Bulldogs but projects as a free safety on the next level.
"I can cover well, but I will also come up and hit you," Jones said. "I am the kind of guy that comes up and causes a fumble when we need a turnover, but I think I am little bit better in coverage and that is why I think I will be a free safety on the college level."
As a junior Jones collected 71 tackles and 10 interceptions, one of the interceptions he returned for a touchdown.
"I am looking for a school that has a depth chart that favors me playing early," Jones said. "Really I am just trying to see who all offers and go from there. I am going to the NIKE camp at Georgia next month to try and raise my stock."
Jones lists the Miami Hurricanes as his favorite followed by Oklahoma, LSU, Georgia, Ole Miss, Florida State and Tennessee.
