Plenty of SEC schools are trying to poach three-star quarterback Mac Jones away from Mark Stoops and Kentucky.
Texas A&M became the latest school to offer Jones a scholarship, which he revealed Sunday night on Twitter.

The 6-foot-2 Jacksonville native is rated as the nation’s No. 15 pro-style quarterback in the Class of 2017. He committed to Kentucky last July, but has since garnered a ton of interest from other SEC schools.
Texas A&M joins Alabama as the second SEC school to express interest in Jones during the spring. Alabama offered Jones a scholarship in April.
The Aggies are looking for a contingency plan after five-star quarterback Tate Martell de-committed from the program last week. Kevin Sumlin doesn’t have a viable long-term option on the roster after both Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray transferred from the program last winter.
Jones is one of Kentucky’s biggest gems in a 2017 class that currently ranks ninth in the country and third in the SEC, according to 247Sports.com.
