Three-star quarterback Mac Jones may be committed to Kentucky, but mutual feelings between Texas A&M and himself could lead to a change of heart for the prospect.
“I like (A&M) a lot,” Jones told Taylor Hamm of 247Sports (subscription required). “I talk to the coaches about once a week. They seem like they’re really good coaches and work well together. It’s good to see how much they keep up with me so I’m trying to keep that relationship going.”
Jones has seen his stock rise in a short amount of time, due to his busy April. After taking home MVP honors at the Atlanta Rivals Camp, Jones increased his number of potential suitors to 15, including an offer from Alabama and Louisville shortly thereafter.
Offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone and Texas A&M are looking to add to their list of 2017 quarterbacks, having already received a verbal commitment from No. 1-rated dual-threat quarterback Tate Martell. The Aggies haven’t made Jones an offer, but from where he’s sitting, it’s a matter of “when,” not “if.”
“They haven’t really talked to me about it,” Jones told 247Sports. “They still have a quarterback committed. We’ve really just been trying to build that relationship. They want me to get out to College Station. If they offer me, I’ll see about setting up a visit out there.”
Jones threw for more than 2,100 yards and 26 touchdowns in his junior season, and is currently the No. 15 pro-style quarterback prospect in the country.
