    Canton (OH)

    Height: 6-foot-2
    Weight: 190 pounds
    40-yard dash: 4.4 seconds
    Grades: GPA 2.6, ACT 16

    Plays corner and also plays WR. Excellent athlete with 4.48 speed, 36" vertical, and a 315 bench press. Good size. Improving hands and toughness. In track runs the 100m, 200m, and 4X100 relay. Best time in 100m is 10.8, for 200m it is 21.9. He ran a 4.4 at tOSU camp.

    Max Emfinger 4 star free safety- Brad Jones 6-3, 195, 4.45, Canton McKinley, OH (OHST, PITT, PUR, NU, IOWA)

    Schools in the Running: Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Akron- tOSU and Pitt are the two favorites.

    He currently plays CB but projects as a safety at the next level. He went to tOSU junior day. He is a tremendous athlete but might need to show that he is more of hitter to get a tOSU offer. There is great depth at DB this year in Ohio- Jamario, Harrison, Myers- White, Hampton, Brinson, Council plus some OOS targets. Jones probably needs a good senior year.

    sounds like Pitt is his number one choice, after a Pitt junior day that he described as "ten times better than tOSU's Junior Day"- he was quoted as saying that he would commit on the spot to Pitt if they offered

    this was slightly disappointing since he sounds like he will be a good one. but we probably will only take 4 DB's at the most this year and we have a long list of great prospects that can fill those spots including O'Neal, Harrison, Lenix (if considered a S), Hampton, Myers- White and a few OOS's like Mitchum's ex-teammate Jayson White

    With O'Neal, Myers-White, Lenix, and Harrison in-state, guys like Jones probably won't be offered.

    I agree. Right now I want those four, unless a BIGTIME oos guy comes knockin' at Tressel's door.

    According to latest Rivals update, Brad will be going to Pitt this weekend and if they offer he will verbal on the spot.

    I guess we will have to be satisfied with Jamario, Lenix, Myers-White & Harrison. :biggrin:

    Jones may have slipped a bit in the mind of recruiters but he had a heck of track day yesterday

    Jones Update from Gary :wink: Housteau - Premium

    Jones is looking for a Big Ten offer and that's the conference he'd like to play in. Bollman is recruiting him. Jones mentioned being a Buckeye fan growing up and that he'd love to play in Columbus.

    Judging from his most recent update, it seems that Jones' feelings towards us have done a complete 180 from his earlier updates.

    Perhaps he's getting the attention he sought all along from us now.

    Maybe. Or perhaps he's not getting the attention from other schools he thought he deserved. The only offers Jones has are from MAC schools. He talked a lot about Pitt early on and how he was going to camp over there and get his offer. To me, it sounded like he was trying to leverage us. He's still not showing that offer and won't make the early decision he planned on

    With Dantonio now at UC, Jones should jump at that provided he doesn't get any Big Ten offers.
