Mississippi State’s usual influx of recruits from Big Dawg Camp is starting to live up to the hype as 2019 QB Jalon Jones has announced his commitment Bulldogs. Jalon Jones hails from Richmond, Virginia, but will attend St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, Maryland for his junior year.
Jalon had a monster year as a sophomore racking up offers from Alabama, UCLA, Mississippi State, Virginia, and Virginia Tech. He is considered a dual-threat quarterback, but his potential is off the charts. Jones’s 40 time is equally impressive for a junior QB at 4.68 and is sure to only improve. Keep in mind that he is only a junior and it will be interesting to see how he develops over the next two seasons.
Jones is currently rated as an 89 by 247 Sports, which is just one point shy of 4 star status, which he is expected to gain in the future. Jones becomes the second commitment for Mississippi State’s 2019 Class joining Drelan Porter, who is a JUCO defensive end. Jalon could be the leader of what many predict to have the potential to be the best class Mississippi State has ever put together in 2019 with Ole Miss’s NCAA issues looming and a number of top prospects in the state of Mississippi, however the first high school commitment from this talented class doesn’t come from the Magnolia State, but by the way of Virginia.
