Bobcat FB recruit: DeAndre Jones


Another Texan that the Montana state Football coaching staff is looking at is DeAndre Jones. Jones is a 6-0 185 pound running back from Harker Heights high school in Harker Heights Texas. While primarily being looked at as a running back right now some feel he may end up as a wide receiver or defensive back in college.

Jones backed up All Conference running back Kerry Sloan last year. Sloan compiled 1307 yards and 16 touch downs last season. Jones is expected to fill the void in 2010 for Sloan’s departure, and for his part managed 350 yards and 2 touch downs as Sloan’s primary back up. Jones also saw time at the wide receiver, defensive back and special teams spots for Harker.

Jones runs a 4.5 in the 40 yard dash, 4.4 in the shuttle, and has a 35 inch vertical jump.

Here is an evaluation from scout.com

Okay size for a receiver, he also lines up at running back. Great hands, he catches the ball like he should. When he catches a ball down field he wastes no effort in turning upfield. Has some side to side moves in which he can get extra yards. Good balance when he runs with the ball and can bounce off of tacklers from time to time.

The key to him being a successful running back or having to change positions could be adding more strength and power.

The two schools showing the most interest right now are Montana State and Army.  A lot of schools are taking a wait and see position on Jones and a good summer could improve his stock.
