Letter of intent No. 10: Josh Jones
Walled Lake (Mich.) Western High
6-foot-2, 200 pounds
Stats: Defensively made 95 tackles, 53 of them solo, three sacks, five interceptions, two pass breakups, three quarterback hurries, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries as a senior Also rushed 86 times for 668 yards and 19 touchdowns and caught 18 passes for 303 yards and four more scores Averaged 17.1 yards on 11 punt returns and 44.8 yards on four kickoff returns Had 30 tackles and two interceptions on defense and returned three kicks for scores as a junior.
Ratings: Ranked by Rivals.com as a three-star prospect, the No. 29 safety in the country and No. 8 player from Michigan Listed by Scout.com as a three-star recruit, the No. 31 safety in the nation and the No. 11 player in the state Ranked as the No. 9 prospect in Michigan by National Underclassmen Rated the No. 8 recruit in the state by the Detroit Free Press Regarded as a three-star prospect, the No. 59 safety in the nation and No. 12 player in Michigan by 24/7 Sports Considered a three-star player, the 88th best safety in the country and 30th best recruit in the state by ESPN Rated the No. 16 player in Michigan by the Detroit News.
Honors/accomplishments: Named first-team Division 1-2 All-State by the Associated Press Scored five first half touchdowns (three rushing, two receiving) and intercepted a pass to help Walled Lake Western win the Division 2 district finals.
Recruitment: Like [db]Kenton Gibbs[/db], Jones was a one-time Illinois-commitment. Before pledging for the Illni, he had also committed to Toledo. In the end, he narrowed his choices to Colorado, Pittsburgh and NC State, taking visits to all three, and choosing the Pack at the end of his official trip on the weekend of Jan. 25.
Recruiter of record: Tight ends coach and special teams coordinator [db]Eddie Faulkner.
2013 projection: Jones is a versatile prospect who could find his way on the field this fall. Depth at safety is thin, opening the door for Jones if he can grasp the defense well during preseason camp.
