Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood DB Chris Jones impressed the USF coaching staff at the recent satellite camp in Jacksonville enough to both earn him an offer and an invite to Saturday Night Live.

Jones came down and took in the entire atmosphere of Raymond James Stadium - and left impressed.

"It was great," said Jones. "I didn't get a chance to see the campus, but I got a chance to meet all the coaches and talk to them."

"It was great to compete against a lot of people and very competitive. I really enjoyed it," he said. "I feel like I did pretty well."

Jones has been recruited by Nick Sheridan and position coach Ron Cooper, and got a chance to talk one-on-one with South Florida head coach Willie Taggart.

"It was a very connective talk. We connected right off the bat," Jones said of his conversation with Taggart. "It's a great program the way they have it set up. The coaches really relate to the players."

The summer is filled for Jones - with some visits and camps.

"I'm going to be going to camp at Florida State and at Georgia Tech this month," said Jones. "I'm actually thinking about making an early decision, I'm just not sure yet.

And where does USF stand on that 'early commitment' list?

"If I had to say, USF would be my number one choice today. The coaches are very connected with the players. School-wise , it's a great school and it's not too far from home."

Jones, a 6-foot, 185 pound DB, also has offers from Purdue, Florida International, Middle Tennessee, Presbyterian, Wisconsin, Western Michigan, Western Kentucky and UMass.
