    Re: Jeff Jones

    He would be such a good steal but it will be tough to beat out Florida and Michigan

    No doubt, but at this point I'm shocked he mentioned us in that group.

    Re: Jeff Jones

    Is he visiting Ames or are we visiting him at his home between now and signing day?

    I would be absolutely shocked if we don't do an in home visit with him soon, and at least another time, especially since we just added Mangino and Ayeni.

    Re: Jeff Jones

    I like how he says establishing a good relationship with the coach(es) is important. That is one thing you hear a lot from our players and our recruits - the relationships which are built/in place.

    The part I don't like is that he says Florida and Michigan have no current RB recruits in their respective classes. My guess is more than likely he sticks with the Gophers, but would be a great get if we can somehow pull it off.

    Hope PT is important to him. That is an advantage we might have over those schools.

    Re: Jeff Jones

    Well he committed to Minny.so close to home likely important but he.clearly has.reservatuons about the goofers because he's looking. My guess is our proximity plus Rhoads has us still under consideration.

    Re: Jeff Jones

    Jones is not going to Florida or Michigan. From the Star Tribune. Our chances? Not good?

    Nice find. Here the link:

    Jones no longer has visits scheduled to Florida and Michigan; Gophers' chances continue to look good | Gridiron Gold | StarTribune.com


    Florida and Michigan, which intensified their recruiting efforts for Jones after his big performance in this month's Under Armour All-American Game, have turned their attention elsewhere.

    I think they are better with him not making those visits but it's hard to tell. He might have solidified his commitment to Minnesota. Hard to tell.

    Re: Jeff Jones

    For me the flashing red beacon is that he hasn't qualified yet. I hope we stick it out, he makes it, and comes to Ames.

    Re: Jeff Jones

    From the article he sounded solid for Minnesota. There are some guys who are better off getting away from their home area for a variety of reasons and that is ISU's best chance. I'm sure Mangino and Ayeni would be thrilled to have him.

    Re: Jeff Jones

    Is there any chance we still take him after Warren committing this weekend?

    I thought it was interesting that the Minny folks still think we have a slight chance at stealing him. Might not have realized that we had another running back commit this weekend?

    Marcus R. Fuller @GophersNow Follow Heard 4-star Washburn running back Jeff Jones had a great visit with Kill on Sunday. He's down to #Gophers and Iowa St. MN still favorite.

    Re: Jeff Jones

    It's also starting to look like he might be a qualifier risk as well...
