Notes: Holds offers from Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Illinois, Iowa, Miami (Ohio), Michigan, Michigan State . . . Coached by Ted Ginn, Sr., a notoriously Ohio State-leaning coach . . .

Strengths: Stands tall in the pocket . . . Good play action fakes . . . Nice overhand delivery . . . Doesn’t let elbow drop, even on the run . . . Keeps eyes downfield when scrambling . . . Has nice touch . . . Puts a good arc on deep throws . . . Superb accuracy for a high school quarterback . . . Above average speed for a quarterback . . . Good elusiveness in pocket
Weaknesses: Carries the ball loosely when scrambling . . . Sloppy footwork from under center . . . Doesn’t have a rocket for an arm . . . Doesn’t have great speed for a running quarterback . . . Quick enough to get out of trouble; not quick enough to be a big play threat in the running game . . . Trusts his athleticism too much, which could make for a rough early transition to big-time college football
Projection: Jones is a BCS-level quarterback who needs a few years to develop. He could become a solid starter late in his career.
Reminds me of: a weaker armed, high school-age Jamarcus Russell
