Jones, a 6-foot-4, 361-pound prospect, is rated the No. 11 defensive tackle and the No. 61 overall player in the country per the 247Sports Composite. He chose Alabama over Texas, Baylor, LSU and Texas A&M (among others).
"I just sat down with my family and talked to them about it, and it was just the right fit for me," Jones said Friday evening. "That's all there was to me. It's a weight off my shoulders. I go into next year focusing on my grades and I take it from there."
