Jones is unranked by Rivals and listed as a two-star prospect by Scout. The 6-foot-6, 245-pound target had other reported offers from Air Force, Colorado State, Idaho, Nevada, Northern Arizona, UC Davis and Wyoming.
Jones is the second tight end prospect the Buffaloes have received a verbal commitment from for 2014, joining Granite Bay, Calif., product Dylan Keeney.
The future Buffs target and Christian Brothers eliminated Colorado commit Jomon Dotson's American Canyon squad 30-27 in a CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Div. II playoff quarterfinal on Nov. 22. Jones is credited with 499 yards receiving on 35 catches (14.26 per catch average) with two touchdowns as a senior for the 9-4 Falcons; he's also listed as the center on Christian Brothers' basketball team. The Falcons used Jones on offense, defense and he was even their kicker this past season. His Hudl highlights are available here.
