Jones emerges on USC radar

Jack Jones really emerged on the scene after an outstanding showing at the UCLA 7on7 and the Bruins were the first to offer.
It's something the 2016 athlete from powerhouse Long Beach (Calif.) Poly will not forget.
"It was kind of a surprise," Jones said. "I was just going there not really expecting an offer. I just wanted to do really well and that's what I did.
"They have a really good program there. It's a good school. I would go there definitely."
UCLA wants the 2016 prospect to play wide receiver and Jones said he's all for it. The 5-foot-10, 144-pound prospect left the UCLA workout with an offer and then quickly after that Boise State jumped in with an offer as well.
It's so early and Jones has not even started his junior season so he's not rushing anything. UCLA is under major consideration and Boise State will get a look as well but the Poly prospect doesn't want to make any decisions this early.
"I want to see what else happens," Jones said.
One reason Jones doesn't want to commit at this point is because another Pac-12 power is starting to seriously look at him as well.
Jones grew up a fan of USC football and the Trojans have started to poke around. An offer from that team would definitely be big for the 2016 recruit. At this point, Jones just wants to keep working hard and see what happens through the season.
"I only heard from USC, that's it," Jones said. "Other than that no other colleges have been talking to me.
"They started looking at me after my spring game, USC and Boise State. That would be big. I want that offer from USC. My brother really wants me to go there. I liked the college growing up and I've always liked SC so I really want that offer."
