LOVEJOY, Ga.- A hometown product feels that the hometown school could be close to offering.
Lovejoy (Ga.) defensive line prospect Patrick Jones recently made the short trip to Atlanta for the Georgia Tech Junior Day and says that he feels the Yellow Jackets could be close to offering the 6-foot, 295-pounder a scholarship.
"They've been going into depth with me a lot, showing me a lot of attention," Jones said.
The Junior Day experience at Tech was enjoyable, according to Jones.
"It was actually very nice," he said. "I enjoyed it."
Jones, who has played linebacker for his high school team, says that most schools now are recruiting him to play along the defensive line, most likely defensive tackle.
"There may be a chance that I can play linebacker, but it's a long process," Jones said. "You've got to play it by ear."
Jones also could potentially play fullback.
Jones attended the Rivals.com Junior Day on Saturday at his high school.
"I actually learned a lot about the recruiting process and what it takes," he said.
Jones, who plans to camp at Georgia Tech this summer, also lists Miami (Fla.), Auburn, Alabama, UCLA and Oregon as schools he is interested in.
Jones plans to attend the Athens NIKE Camp April 29 on the campus of the University of Georgia.
