Interest Is Climbing For Teammates

Interest Is Climbing For Teammates

This tall, rangy QB will have a completely new offense and expects to air it out his senior year. His RB teammate is #10 in our initial Alamo City Top 20 for 2014. Both are now getting interest from the hometown 'Runners.

East Central welcomes a new Head Coach and new Offense for 2013. The ground and pound that was a staple for now departed Coach Robert Walker is a thing of the past. Prepare for the Hornets to take to the air.

Two of the players they'll be leaning heavily on are quarterback Jeremy Jones and running back Jonathan Jackson.

Jackson is a legit 6'0", 200lb running back. His recruiting is still surprising slow, but he's taking it one day at a time.

After seeing Jackson in four games last season, he is undoubtedly one of the top backs in the Alamo City. He currently ranks as our #2 RB for 2014 and #the 10 overall prospect in the San Antonio area. He has good speed, great vision and is physical. He'll look for that one cut, hit it and accelerate up field. It was a rare sight last season to see any defender bring down Jackson on first contact.

Along with Jones, he attended the recent UTSA spring game and liked what he saw. Jonathan is a quiet young man by nature, but the coaching staff was able to speak with him and let him know that they'll be watching closely and coming out during the spring.

Jackson is still awaiting his first offer.

Jones, is a long, rangy quarterback who is still raw in the eyes of some. He stands in at 6'6", 195lbs and is know for his scrambling ability and athleticism. He's clocked a 4.63 -40 before.

A lot of eyes will be on Jones this spring and later this fall. For the first time, he'll be in a pass heavy offense and will have a chance to showcase his arm.

As a wildcat QB, his sheer athleticism has already earned two offers from Rice and Rutgers. Top notch programs like LSU, Baylor, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M have either been by or in contact.

Previously the UTSA staff had invited Jones to their junior day in February, but he had already made plans to travel to Baton Rouge.

"I wasn't able to make it to the junior day in February. I had already set things up with LSU. I talk with Coach Eliano almost every week because we go to the same church," said Jones.

The Coaching staff has told Jones that they'll be by this spring to see him in person as they want to see more of him throwing.
