Kevin Jones has been racking up yardage faster than any other running back in the Washington area this season. Attracting attention from college recruiters, though, is proving more difficult for the Bullis senior.
While Jones has rushed for 919 yards and 10 touchdowns in four games – gaining at least 160 yards in each game – he has just one scholarship offer, from Bryant, a Football Championship Subdivision school. Other FCS schools have shown interest, Bulldogs Coach Pat Cilento said, and he hopes that things might pick up a bit after the 5-foot-7, 165-pound Jones takes the SAT for the first time on Saturday.
“Once that comes back, I think we’ll get a little bit more interest,” Cilento said. “I really haven’t talked to him that much about it.”
Jones, who attended Carroll for his first two years of high school, rushed for 1,648 yards and 19 touchdowns last season. Cilento said that Jones could put a bit more weight on his frame, but “I don’t think he’s going to grow much more. … As far as vision, you can put him right up there with the best of them. Vision and his first step.”
