More from Football Recruiting
Dean Jones, a 2020 recruit who plays both wide receiver and defensive back and has committed to BYU, will be visiting Arizona Football this weekend and attending the NAU game. Jones stands 6-foot-3 and weighs lbs and has earned a 4.4 GPA while attending High School.
Jones announced his commitment to BYU on June 18, 2019. According to AZ Central, while attending North Canyon High School in Junior year, “He played strong safety, recording 25 tackles, 19 solo, with an interception and 10 pass breakups as a junior.” The site also said that Jones chose BYU for the camaraderie of the team and coaches, and the faith the coaches had in him.
Jones has since transferred high schools due to his fathers work transfer and now attends American Leadership Academy, a charter school in Queen Creek Arizona. The school is one of the top 3A schools in Arizona and it’s actually moving up to become a 4A next year per one of Jones coaches, former Arizona Football star Paul Magloire Jr., “It’s got elite facilities and is becoming one of the top athletics schools in queen creek Arizona almost like a private school but it’s not.”
Magloire feels strongly about Jones’, “He’s an exceptional DB that’s been getting tons of Pac-12 and SEC attention he’s definitely on the brink of picking up a couple offers before December.”
Jones is currently rated as a 3-star athlete on 247Sports, but that could definitely change this season. During the recruiting process, per BYU Insider, Jones had interested from, “Utah, Hawaii, Wyoming, Utah State, UTEP, and ASU,” prior to his commitment. Now, it seems the ALA senior is interested in the University of Arizona which is good news! Jones may not play until after his LDS mission is complete in 2022.
