Jones back from first official visit

Wide receiver Quincy Jones was one of the biggest playmakers for an 8-4 Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward team that played one of the toughest schedules in the country this fall. Now that his senior season is over, the 6-3, 185-pound Jones is turning his attention back to his recruitment.
"Eastern Michigan offered a couple weeks ago and I actually took my official visit to Eastern Michigan this weekend," Jones reported. "Coach [Ron] English, I really like his staff and I really like the people up there. The quarterback, Alex Gillett, was my host and he's a really good guy, showed me a great time."
Besides Eastern Michigan, Jones also holds offers from Western Michigan and West Virginia. He maintains contact with Mountaineers assistant coach Bill Bedenbaugh on a weekly basis, and is looking to schedule an official visit to Morgantown soon.
"That is probably coming up," Jones said. "We have to find a date."
Jones is also still hearing from Mid-American Conference programs Akron and Ball State. His visit to Ypsilanti this past weekend, though, gave Eastern Michigan a boost on his interest list.
"After the Eastern visit, they're definitely [a favorite] because it is the only school I've been to," Jones said. "I'm pretty excited about them and they are really in need of a wide receiver so I could probably go in and play early.
Jones played wide receiver and also was the main returner for St. Edward this past season. He finished the year with 39 receptions and five touchdowns.
