QB commit won't take any other visits
Four-star quarterback Mac Jones (Jacksonville, FL) flipped his commitment from Kentucky to Alabama this week, and he said he's now completely solid on the Tide and won't visit any other schools.
“I don’t want to take any other visits,” Jones told 247sports. “I’m done, I’m happy and I’m excited that this process is over.”
In fact, Jones is so solid that he plans to recruit other prospects to Tuscaloosa.
“Jerry Jeudy from Deerfield Beach, he’s a pretty good friend of mine, I like him a lot,” he said. “Devonta Smith, ‘Smitty’, I kind of met him, but I kind of just let him do his own thing because I’m not as close with him. But I’ll get on him a little bit. I got to meet all the commits like VanDarius (Cowan) and Elliot (Baker) and Alex (Leatherwood). It was good to see those guys. They were all happy and excited. I’ve been working on people. I have a list that I’ll be reaching out to in the next couple days.”
The 6'2", 180-pounder is ranked as the No. 14 pro-style quarterback and No. 281 overall prospect in the country.Back to the Alabama Crimson Tide Newsfeed
