College coaches flock to talent-rich Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward High year after year, and wide receiver Quincy Jones is looking for the attention his school attracts to help him garner more scholarship offers.
As it stands, the 6-3, 185-pound Jones holds offers from West Virginia, Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan. He continues to hear from schools like Boston College, Iowa and Cincinnati.
Among the schools showing interest that have not offered, Jones cited Boston College as potentially being the most interested. His teammate, tight end Sam Grant, is already committed to the Eagles.

"Boston College, I talked to the coach last week and he said they were looking for another wide receiver," Jones said. "They talked to me a little bit about Sam because he is their first recruit from here. Sam has talked to me a little about it. He told me the coach is a real nice guy and he really likes their campus."
The schools that have not offered are looking to see senior film of Jones. The schools that have offered, like West Virginia, are keeping tabs on the three-star receiver throughout his senior season.
"I still talk to them," Jones said of West Virginia. "I just keep updating them once a week. They just want to check up on grades, and stuff like that. Our coach always make sure we are doing good in the classroom."
Jones attended West Virginia's spring game last April, and does plan to return to Morgantown, but after his senior season is complete.
"I'm sure I will be taking an official with them after the season," Jones said. "I am pretty sure I am going to take an official to Eastern because they really sound interested and I like the coaches there."
Jones' official visits will have to wait until he finishes his senior season. St. Edward starts the OHSAA playoffs this week and is looking to make it deep into the postseason. They ended their season with a 7-3 record after a 20-17 loss to rival St. Ignatius on Saturday.
"I think we gave them the game, but we'll see them again," Jones remarked.
