Tyren Jones, who is considered by some to be the state’s No. 1 prospect at RB, recently made an unofficial visit to UGA.
That normally wouldn’t be a big deal – except for the fact that Jones has been committed to Alabama since last February. The 5-foot-9, 195-pounder from Walton High School picked the Crimson Tide over UGA and Clemson.
UGA is still chasing hard after Jones, who was the leading rusher in the state’s largest classification last season.
Why did Jones visit to UGA? He hasn’t talked much about it, perhaps not wanting to worry Alabama fans. But he finally revealed the reasons to the AJC in the above video.
Jones also talked about his high school teammate, offensive lineman Brandon “The Finisher” Kublanow, who is committed to UGA.
Are they trying to form a “package deal” to go to Alabama or UGA? Jones also addresses that in the video.
UPDATED: No disrespect to the one and only Robert Nkemdiche, but Tyren Jones may have been the most outstanding performer in Saturday’s Corky Kell Classic at the Georgia Dome. Jones rushed for 305 yards and 5 touchdowns in the win over Brookwood.
