Waynesboro (Miss.) Wayne County 2016 defensive tackle Benito Jones has been hard at work over the last few months. Most of his workout consists of running and hitting the weight room, and he has been able to add some solid weight as he now checks in at 280 pounds.
Jones, who holds offers from Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Southern Miss, has been hitting the camp circuit as well with his first camp in Oxford, Miss.
"I've been to one, Ole Miss," Jones said. "It went pretty good."
Since he has already been able to check out Ole Miss there was not much about the trip which stood out, but he did notice how much attention and "love" the Rebels showed while he was there.
July will be a little busier for Jones with three camps coming up on his schedule.
"I have to go Alabama July 14 and Georgia July 18 and July 24 I have to go to LSU," Jones said.
Ole Miss is the program Jones feels has shown the most attention, but his most recent offer holds the lead at this point.
"Well, everybody is thinking I'm going to Alabama, and I'd like to commit there but it's just I want to wait until the end of my senior year to make my final choice," Jones said.
Jones has not hidden the fact he grew up a fan of the Crimson Tide over the years. In May he received an offer from Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide program.
