Continued: Minneapolis Washburn football star is tough to pin down

Distraction came again this fall, however, as rumors swirled he was transferring to powerhouse Eden Prairie.

“Really, it was just a thought,” Jones said, declining to elaborate on the situation. “But I’m here at Washburn and things are working out. I bleed blue and orange.”

Gophers fans must wait and watch to find out whether Minnesota maroon and gold run through Jones’s veins. The rush that came with making an early verbal commitment has given way to a larger view of what the college football world has to offer.

“I see some things in other schools that I also see in Minnesota that could also be a great chance for me,” Jones said.

Jones, who hopes to play right away in college at running back or slot receiver, plans to make his announcement Feb. 5 on national signing day. He visualizes sitting down at a table with hats representing a handful of colleges and choosing the best fit.

“I can honestly say since I was about in the sixth grade, I saw it on TV and I just wanted to do that,” Jones said. “I always wanted to pick up the hat.”
