Alabama lands commitment from CB Chris Jones

Minor High School cornerback Chris Jones committed to play football for the Alabama Crimson Tide. He announced the commitment on Fox 6 television.

According to recruiting expert Andrew Bone, “Jones had more than 20 scholarship offers from schools including Auburn, Florida, Notre Dame and Tennessee.”

“I love the chance I will have to play for Nick Saban, ” Jones said. “I love to have a shot getting a ring. I know I’d have a good chance doing that at Alabama.”

According to, “This is a big pick-up for Alabama because of the versatility of Jones,” said Recruiting Editor Tim Watts. “Jones can line up and be a Robbie Green-type at safety with superior coverage skills. Physically he is very similar to Green as well. He also has great ball skills and can return kicks and punts and is a threat to return a pick back for a score at any time.”
