Jones adds another SEC offer

Sheriron Jones added another SEC offer and now the Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde quarterback has even more to consider in his recruitment.
Tennessee is the newest offer for the four-star after offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian saw Jones throw recently and the Vols are hoping he can visit sometime this summer.
"The offensive coordinator, we got to know each other over Facebook and then he came down to see me throw in person," Jones said. "He left for a while and took the film back to coach (Butch) Jones. They looked it over and he told me to call up coach Jones (Wednesday) so I called and he offered me.
"They want me to come out there. They understand it's kind of difficult to get out there. He said they want me to come down in June because that's when they're going to have their camp so I can spend time with everybody and learn some stuff while I'm there. They wanted to offer me while I was there but they knew it would be difficult for me to get there.
"I'm just trying to decide when I can get out there. Now with everybody starting to blow up, they're just trying to make sure they get a dude who can be the best in the country. It seems like every week somebody new is offering me."
It has been busy for Jones, rated as the ninth-best dual-threat quarterback in the 2015 class by
The Rancho Verde standout now has offers from Tennessee, Akron, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Florida, Indiana and Nebraska.
There is no question Florida is aggressively recruiting him and the Gators are pushing for a commitment. Jones said, however, the coaching staff respects his timeline and he definitely likes Florida as his recruitment goes on.
"They're really pushing," Jones said. "If I'm going to commit I'll most likely be out there to commit. I want to commit when I'm at the school, wherever I commit. If I don't get a chance to do that I will commit if I'm not there.
"They're pushing me hard but they understand that I want to do it after the first game of my senior year. If I don't get down to the school, that's what I want to do. They're letting me do everything at my pace and on my time and I respect them for that."
