He was among the 10 best offensive tackle prospects nationally, with No. 6 rankings by both Scout and ESPN. He missed the first half of his senior season with a shoulder injury, but still earned Illinois Coaches Association first-team Class 6A allstate honors and Champaign News-Gazette all-state accolades. Graduated early with a degree in family resource management in December of 2017. He is the son of Urica Jones.
