Jones told the Miami Herald and Rivals.com he committed to UT partly because the Vols were the first to offer back in January. He also considered Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida and USC.
The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Jones had 70 tackles and 20 sacks last year as defensive end, but he can play almost any position. He told VolsQuest.com, "I'll play anything as long as I can get on the field. I'll even play kicker if I have to."
