Three lead for Dwayne Jones

Running back Dwayne Jones is one of the nation's top players, and he's hearing from several major programs. Who are his leaders?
"Boston College, Syracuse and Ohio State are my leaders," said Jones. "Those three schools are about even at this point. None of them are across the country or anything, so distance isn't going to be too much of a factor. Ohio State has a great team, and it would be nice to play for a school that has so much tradition. There would probably be more playing time at BC and Syracuse."
There has been some speculation that Jones may end up at fullback in college. Is that the case?
"I don't really think that will be the case," said Jones. "Everyone that has been recruiting me has talked about me playing running back. They like my size and acceleration. I'm a good blocker, but the coaches I've talked to really seem interested in getting me the ball a lot. That's when I'm most effective."
Size and strength are two things Jones definitely possesses. The 6-foot-1, 233-pound Lakewood, N.J. runner has strength between the tackles, and can turn the corner against nearly any defense.
"I'm going to consider a lot of things when I'm making my decision, but in the end that all might not be too important. It will mostly just be a gut feeling, based on where I feel most comfortable and where I think I can succeed."
