Boston College Football Recruiting: Safety Davon Jones Commits To Eagles

New, 10 comments

Local dude is #17 of the 2015 class.

Boston College again landed another recruit, this time a local defensive back, Davon Jones from St. John's in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts:

Jones had been camping at BC this week, and when he received his offer he must have committed on the spot. At 6'0 180 lbs he is a little small for a safety, but that is something they can fix when he gets to BC. For a local kid he seems like he put together a resume that makes him worthy of playing at BC:

The 6-foot, 180-pound Jones was an ESPNBoston All-State selection last fall after recording 125 tackles, eight interceptions, eight tackles for loss, and five forced fumbles from the free safety position. It was his second straight season registering over 100 tackles, as the Pioneers reached the inaugural MIAA Division 2 State Championship. Jones was also the Pioneers’ second-leading receiver, catching 50 passes for 680 yards and seven touchdowns.

Currently Jones is not ranked by any of the recruiting sites, and holds an offer from Coastal Carolina. You can see more of his game film below. Welcome to the Heights Davon!
