Broderic Jones is the master of disguise. One minute the 6-foot-1, 175-pound wide receiver from Ennis, Texas says that he's committed to West Virginia. And the next minute, he says he's not. It can even happen in the very same conversation.
"I guess you could say that I'm committed to West Virginia but at the same time I'm still looking around," Jones said. "I wouldn't put me down as committed officially right now."
Committed or not, whoever earns Jones' signature will be a happy team.

Jones, who is 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, is one of state's most explosive receivers. In two games this season, he already has 15 receptions good for 290 yards and five touchdowns.
Jones says he has narrowed his choices to West Virginia, where he makes an official visit on Oct. 6 for the Mountaineers' game with Virginia, to Oklahoma, to LSU, to Arkansas and to Texas.
Oklahoma and Texas have yet to offer, but Jones says he likes his chances of drawing their interest, especially if he keeps producing like he has in the first two games of the season.
A teammate of Jones', Vincent Marshall, is also receiving his fair share of recruiting attention. Marshall, who is a 5-foot-9, 165-pound wide receiver, says he is being courted by West Virginia, Wisconsin and TCU.
Each of the schools like the fact that Marshall can play either offense or defense in college and his all-around athleticism. Some are even talking to Marshall about also being to continue his budding track career.
Marshall, after all, is the Class 4A state champion in the triple jump, winning the title with a leap of 49-foot, 6-inches.
