2016 commit makes 2nd from western Pennsylvania

Woodland Hills (Pa.) athlete Jeremiah Jones committed to West Virginia after visiting for the Towson game.


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia’s second football commitment for the class of 2016 comes from the same area as the first.

Woodland Hills (Pa.) junior athlete Jeremiah Jones received an offer from the Mountaineers shortly before enjoying what he called a “crazy environment” during the 54-0 win over Towson. Within 48 hours he had pledged to West Virginia, joining Freeport (Pa.) Senior linebacker Logan Thimons.

The 6-foot, 198-pound Jones, who started only two games at quarterback as a high school sophomore before earning the job this season, told recruiting services he’s interested in playing offense at the college level, though he is primarily projected as a defensive back.

“Jones has a great frame to put on weight but still appears to have the top-end speed that lighter skill position players have,” said Rivals writer Keenan Cummings of WVSports.com.

Defensive coordinator Tony Gibson, his lead recruiter at West Virginia, has joined fellow assistant Tom Bradley in giving WVU an experienced one-two punch in recruiting western Pennsylvania, Cummings said.

N.C. State and Indiana also have offered Jones, the younger brother of former four-star Penn State signee Paul Jones. The Nittany Lions and programs such as Notre Dame and Maryland are showing interest.
