Twitter says he’s definitely ‘that dude’, @imthat_dude21
This morning Ladies’ Day on KSR was interrupted when 3-star linebacker Jordan Jones called in to announce his commitment to the University of Kentucky. As you’ve probably already heard, Jones comes from the same Cardinal Mooney blood as his lead recruiter, Vince Marrow, and his future head coach Mark Stoops.
The linebacker will be a phenomenal duo alongside the state of Kentucky’s best linebacker, Eli Brown. Both are listed as outside linebackers with great size and athleticism but Jones’ game is a bit different, getting his bread-and-butter from stopping the run on the inside. The way he makes tackles is the kind of stuff they put on instructional coaching videos: he sticks his nose right in the opponent’s sternum, thrusts his hips, then drives his legs until the whistle blows. To add to his badass pedigree, he displays the perfect form on the first play of his highlight reel…in the snow.
Jones’ ability to make plays at the line of scrimmage would make him the perfect replacement for Avery Williamson, but unfortunately we’re going to have to wait another year to watch him do work at 4.47 speed.
Well done Coach Stoops. Make sure brother Bob doesn’t forget it who won this round.
