    Need to get Yeast & Willis to jump on board early & jumpstart the 2017 class !! Jones is a solid way to start

    I would worry about this guy. He went to 12 schools and only came away with offers from UK and ECU? That’s major red flag territory for me. If he’s an SEC caliber guy why don’t other schools like him? I have to really question the decision to accept the commitment this early.

      Or, Stoops and crew have a knack for spotting talent early……. It’s been proven before.

      Bolles is one of the top programs in Florida. They are in a smaller class, not the smallest but third I think, but play for the state title often and have won it several times. Kid is coming from a good program and should be used to big games.

      He’s class of 2017, which means that Stoops and company have spotted talent early again.

    This kid is a proverbial diamond in the rough. My brother in law lives in the Jacksonville area and when I mentioned Mac Jones his ears perked up. His reply was ” that kid is going to be a legend around here”. Looks like Stoops has possibly scored again.

      A legend in football from Jax is saying more than in most cities. To pluck a high caliber player out from under the FL schools would truly be legendary. I hope we hang on to him, especially if he grows another star.
