Jay Jones, the JUCO running back from Northwest Mississippi Community College, recently visited Ole Miss, and he's planning to visit another program soon. Is Louisiana Tech still in the running for Jones?

"I went to Ole Miss a few days ago," said Jay Jones, the swift scatback from Northwest Mississippi CC. "They were doing their conditioning tests before spring, and I watched that. I also took a football tour, although I didn't really see the academic side of the campus.

"After that, I sat down with the running backs coach and we watched film. They showed me the guys they have leaving at my position, and how I can come in and make a difference. I also chilled with a couple of the offensive linemen."

Louisiana Tech is reportedly coming to watch Jones this spring and possibly offer him and a couple of teammates. Which other programs are showing interest?

"The other day, I heard from Mississippi State's coaches," said Jones. "They said they saw that Ole Miss offered me, and they want me to come down and watch them in spring practice. They told me how some of their coaches used to be at Florida and how I remind them of Chris Rainey when he was there."
