The hard work that safety Chris Jones has been putting forth on the football field has led to the first scholarship offer and quite the senior season for the two-star rated prospect.
Hailing from La Jolla (Calif.) High School, Jones is a player that has been playing off of instincts since the day he started the game and it's really starting to pay off during his recruitment. San Jose State became the first school to offer the athlete, and now he's on the look out for some more.
"After them, I'm also hearing a lot from Utah, Northwestern, and Colorado State," Jones said. "Really, San Jose State and Northwestern are kind of my favorites right now. I like both athletic departments and they're Division I programs. Stanford is also up there as well."

Jones, who hopes to have a decision by the end of the year, is starting to think about visits as schools are starting to ask him when he'd like to make it up for a trip.
"Dartmouth offered a visit and of course San Jose State will definitely be one I take," Jones said about visits. "I haven't thought about the others, but they'll come."
So far, the season is going well after a slow start.
"We've lost a couple of tough games to some top ranked teams, but I've also gotten out to a good start with two interceptions and you can tell our defense is really strong," Jones said. "Our offense is starting to get going, so we should be starting a run now."
