Quarterback Landry Jones (6-5, 215, 4.7) from Artesia, N.M., is perhaps the most sought after gunslinger in the west. Jones wanted to make his college decision by March and now that the Ides of March have arrived, fans from many schools are on needles and pins waiting for the talented signal-caller's announcement.
"I'm still planning on making my decision in the spring," Jones said. "The decision could be pushed back to April.
"It all depends on if I'm ready to make the decision," Jones said. "We are trying working some things out right now.
"I will fly to Colorado on Saturday," Jones said. "Next week we are on our spring break so I will be able to spend a couple days in Boulder.
"I might still go to OU for their spring game on April 7th," Jones said. "Right now I have a top four schools of Oklahoma, Colorado, UCLA and Oregon.
"After my visit to Colorado, I will be able to the schools in an order a little bit."
What does like about his top four schools?
"I liked all the coaches at Oklahoma and liked the environment there," Jones said. "I liked UCLA's campus a lot and liked their coaches. UCLA has excellent academics and good academic support systems.
"I like that Oregon is the main NIKE school and they get all the NIKE equipment right away," Jones said. "Oregon also has great facilities and I like their coaches, too.
"I have already been to Colorado for a game and I have visited there in the summer," Jones said. "I really like the town of Boulder and what Coach Dan Hawkins is doing with the CU program.
According to Jones distance and location won't be a major factor in his decision.
"The most important thing is how I feel about the school when I'm there, how I get along with the coaching staff and how I fit in."
All four schools are hoping Jones feels that he fits in because whoever lands the talented quarterback will be getting a heck of a player.
Jones was named New Mexico's State Player of the year after hitting on 211 passes out of 310 attempts (68%) for 3,432 yards and 45 touchdowns against only nine interceptions. He can also makes plays with his feet as he rushed for 294 yards on 57 carries and scored nine touchdowns.
Besides Oklahoma, Colorado, UCLA and Oregon, Jones has offers on the table from Arizona, Wisconsin, Virginia, New Mexico and New Mexico State.
The scouting report on Jones is he is an accurate passer and has excellent arm strength. He also has a good huddle presence and has the leadership qualities that help quarterbacks be successful.
