One of the Atlanta area’s top running backs got some good news from Georgia Tech on late Monday night.
Allatoona High School’s Miles Jones said he talked over the phone with Georgia Tech assistant Brian Bohannon. The Yellow Jackets didn’t offer Jones but invited him to make an official visit in early December.
The 5-foot-11, 203-pound Jones sparked serious interest from Georgia Tech after Liberty County High School running back Shadrach Thornton committed to NC State last weekend.
“Coach Bohannon said they really liked me, mentioned that the other recruit committed to NC State, and said they wanted to get things rolling with me and do it the right way,” Jones told the AJC. “They want to get me over there on an official visit for the weekend to sit down with Paul Johnson and the other coaches so they can get to know me better.”
What was Jones’ reaction to the invite? “I’m thrilled. It would be a dream to get an offer from Georgia Tech. It’s a great school with great academics.”
Jones is waiting for his first D1 offer but has serious interest from TCU and Middle Tennessee State, and made an unofficial visit to UGA last weekend.
