One of the Atlanta area’s top running backs will likely find out this weekend if Georgia Tech will offer a scholarship.
And if they do?
“If they offer me, I would commit,” said Miles Jones of Allatoona High School. “It would be like a dream to play football for Georgia Tech. It’s a great school for academics, and it’s close to home, so my friends and family would get to come to all the games.”
The 5-foot-10, 203-pound Jones will make an official visit to Georgia Tech this weekend. On Wednesday, Jones was visited at school by Brian Bohannon, who coaches Georgia Tech’s running backs.
“Coach Bohannon said that Georgia Tech really liked me,” Jones said. “He said he’s not the guy who will make the final decision about a scholarship offer; that would come from the head coach, Paul Johnson. I’ll get to spend some time with Coach Johnson this weekend, and I guess we’ll see what he says.
“Coach Bohannon said that they want a running back in this recruiting class. He asked me if Coach Johnson offered me, what would I say? He told me to go ahead and think about that because they might want a quicker decision than normal because it’s getting late in the recruiting process. But yes … if they offer me, I would commit.”
Jones is waiting for his first offer after a breakout senior year at Allatoona, rushing for 2,142 yards and 30 touchdowns. He got a call from Maryland on Tuesday night, and also has serious interest from Middle Tennessee State and Elon, among others.
