Hello fellow BNers.. So the WWL's Greg Biggins reported yesterday that 4-star prospect and UCLA recruit Malcolm Jones (Westlake Village, Calif./Oaks Christian) is close to making his decision, and that he is likely going to sign with the Bruins:
"The recruitment of Malcolm Jones (Westlake Village, Calif./Oaks Christian) could be coming to an end shortly. Jones is down to Stanford and UCLA and just visited the Cardinal over the weekend.
"I just talked to him and he said he still likes UCLA," Oaks Christian coach Bill Redell said. "He liked Stanford and has some family pushing him there for the academics, but UCLA is where he wants to go.
"He told me a week ago he would have his decision made before October and today is the last day of September, so I know he should be getting close. If there's a family struggle going on, obviously it could take longer but as of today, he wants to go to UCLA."
Jones is one of the top backs in the West and a very talented linebacker prospect as well. In fact, some feel he may project better on the defensive side of the ball, although he wants to play running back in college."
Needless to say, this would be a GREAT addition to our rising recruiting class. Jones is one of the top RB prospects in the nation who also is a heavy hitter at linebacker (which I'm sure the coaching staff will be looking into more if he does indeed sign with us).
Hopefully though, this early report is true and is confirmed ASAP. CRN is getting it DONE, both on and off the field.
