Jones still has Pac-10 school on top

Jamaal Jones loved everything about his visit to Oregon last weekend for its junior day but the Ducks haven't offered plus the Graham (Wash.) Graham-Kapowsin wide receiver said he still feels most comfortable at another Pac-10 school.
"That's the school I'm most comfortable with right now," Jones said of Washington. "They've been recruiting me the most and I've gotten a good chance to know them all. I've been up there a bunch of times so I've met all the coaches. I know some people up there too so it's more comfortable up there. They have a lot going on up there."
That's not to say Oregon wouldn't vault up Jones' favorite list if it offers. Jones, who also has offers from Washington State and Idaho, said the Oregon coaching staff wanted to see his transcripts before an offer would be considered so he's in the process of getting those together to mail out.

"They want to make sure everything is OK," Jones said. "The coaches said they don't want to have to worry about me not being able to play because of my grades. They asked for my transcripts and I'm about to send those down so maybe I could get an offer."
Oregon's facilities blew Jones away last weekend. That's not a surprise since the Ducks have arguably the best football facilities in college football. Many prospects who were on campus had similar sentiments.
"When I was at the junior day we went through their facilities and I saw their training area and I saw the underwater treadmills and the spas," Jones said. "I got a chance to talk to the coaches a little bit and I saw the new academic center. After we saw all the facilities we got to watch the practice, too.
"Their facilities are top-notch. When I went to the spa and the underwater treadmill area there was one on each side and separating them was a waterfall. The new academic area they have is made entirely of glass.
"When you go there you can have your own laptop. They'll assign you a tutor too and you'll have study time depending on what kind of classes you have. You also have mentors, too."
Jones, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound prospect, said UCLA has increased its interest a lot lately and that he plans to attend a camp there so he can meet the coaching staff. LSU and California also send mail but haven't been in close contact lately.
A commitment could happen by the end of June or early July, Jones said, and Washington is his leader at this point. He plans to attend camps at Washington and UCLA this summer and work out at the Nike Camp at the University of Oregon which is next month.
