High School

Originally signed with N.C. State over offers from Kentucky, West Virginia and Maryland … was a three-star recruit by Rivals and ESPN … named the 28th-best safety by ESPN … ranked as the 58th-best player in Georgia … team went 12-2, including a 7-0 record in conference play … earned a spot in the state Class 5A playoffs … as a senior, had 49 tackles, 33 solo stops, one interception, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery for a touchdown … also standout basketball player, averaging 13.1 points per game … coached by Mike Carson.

Rhoads on Jones:

“Jarnor is a former ACC player at North Carolina State. To get an athlete of his caliber in a bounce back role is a nice pick up for our secondary. He’s tall with long arms, which means there is a lot of space that receivers have to get around to get in the clear. There is also a lot of length that he has to make plays with, whether that be tackles or rerouting receivers. He adds a dimension to our outside linebacker position whether that be nickel or into the boundary with a touch of athleticism that we can not only play physical but we can cover both zone and man.”
