Christian Jones is one hot recruit. This four-star linebacker prospect from Winter Park (Fla.) Lake Howell High School just got a huge offer from USC. This one has him very excited.
"Wow, it's Southern Cal," Jones said. "I mean who wouldn't be excited from getting that offer? If a great program like that sends you an offer from all the way out there you know they want you. The coaches seem to be real cool guys. When I was talking to them they were saying how when they offer a kid from outside the state they really want them. I thought that was really cool."
The last player the Trojans signed from the Central Florida area was linebacker Keith Rivers. Just how interested is this outside linebacker recruit in USC?
"I will definitely visit out there but t will probably be later on and maybe an official visit."
Jones, 6-4 and 220 pounds, recorded 163 tackles last season. He has now been offered by USC, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Michigan, South Florida, Central Florida, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, and Oklahoma. Jones is a member of the Rivals100 (No. 67).
