Flowood (MS) Northwest Rankin 2019 safety Jarrian Jones was not expecting an offer from Michigan until his senior year, but it came extra early.

As a matter of fact, the offer to play for the Wolverines came on Friday, May 5th.

“I was not expecting it,” he said to MnB. “It was mind blowing. I never really thought Michigan would look at me until my senior year because I’m not ranked on 247Sports, so I just thought they would go after the so called four-stars first.”

Jones does not have a list of top schools at the time, but he is willing to play out of his home state of Mississippi.

“I mean right now everybody has a fair chance, because I’m not really worried about recruiting right now,” he mentioned. “I’m worried about getting better for my high school team and getting them a state championship. I am opening to playing out of state.”

Jones made 22 tackles and three interceptions for Northwest Rankin High School during his sophomore season.

The sophomore safety had only good things to say about Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.

“Jim Harbaugh is a great coach and he gives you the best of both worlds,” Jones said. “A great college coach and some insight on the NFL.”
