Jones shows off at receiver

Jack Jones had a great performance in Long Beach (Calif.) Poly's convincing win over Los Angeles Crenshaw in the season opener last weekend.
Days later, the 2016 four-star received an offer from USC.
It was a major one for Jones, a 5-foot-11, 160-pound prospect who especially shined at wide receiver and he said even before the offer came in that USC was one of the schools toward the top of his list.
One reason is because the Trojans have done such a good job of recruiting Poly players in previous recruiting cycles.
"That's going to play a big factor," Jones said. "SC has a big tradition of recruiting Poly guys and I would appreciate them recruiting me. It would be a blessing."
UCLA, Boise State and San Jose State have also offered the 2016 prospect who's rated as the No. 20 athlete and the No. 198 prospect in the 2016 class by Rivals.com.
The Bruins also intrigue Jones especially after he worked out at UCLA this summer. Some unofficial visits are planned and Jones said he would even consider an official trip next year to Westwood.
"They stand kind of high," Jones said of UCLA. "I would definitely go there. I am going to take some unofficial visits there and I may take an official, it depends on the offers I get and what goes on. It's all happening fast but it's very early."
The four-star admits he prefers defensive back but he was so talented at receiver in the season opener that colleges might be interested in him solely for offense. Either way, Jones just wants to make an impact on the field.
"I just really get it all from watching highlights and watching other guys in the pros because they know what they're doing," Jones said. "I learn from the best so if I can it get from them, look at it, understand, practice and go from there.
"I like defensive back better but if offense is where I fit at then that's where I fit. I'm willing to play any position to get on the field."
