Florida Lands Talented In-State Running Back

Running back Matt Jones from Seffner (Fla.) Armwood High School has committed to Florida.

“I grew up a Georgia fan and they were the top, but Florida just took over,” Jones said, according to the Orlando Sentinel. “I just like Coach (Will) Muschamp. He’s a great guy and so is Charlie Weis. They walked me through everything, me and my mom, and it was all great.”

Jones said he was also told he’s Florida No. 1 target at running for 2012. Jones, who stands 6-feet-2 and 200 pounds, said the Gators are also looking for a speedy runner who can also line up in the slot receiver position.

Jones made his commitment to Florida after visiting Gainesville last weekend.

“I was real happy, just so excited,” he said. “I knew I was going to commit when I got there. They were all jacked up … after I told them.”

Jones is Florida’s third commitment for the class of 2012.
