2015 Commit #18 – Jacorie Jones

Another day, another win for UTSA. After beating Houston into submission on Friday, Coach Coker would beat the Coogs again by flipping a committed cornerback in Jacorie Jones. This switch brings the UTSA recruiting class to an impressive total of 18 commitments in early September. Jones, a 5’11”, 175 pound cornerback, is a teammate of commit #17 CJ Levine. When Javi of InsideUTSA.com asked Jones why he flipped his commitment, he simply said “because of the game”. I guess that answers the discussion Wes and I had on the podcast about single game wins directly affecting recruiting. Jones is an extremely physical cornerback that I think could truly dominate at the DI level if he continues to add strength and speed. After watching Jones continually jam receivers off the line, disrupting their routes and timing with their QB, you can see how Levine was able to bring down so many interceptions. I was originally pissed at UTSA for not offering Ike Warren but now I think UTSA might have actually ended up with a better player, proving that patience usually works out well in recruiting.
