MaxPreps named Jones Montana’s top high school football player heading into the 2022 season, while 247Sports ranked him Montana’s third-top prospect in his class. Great Falls athlete Reed Harris (a Boston College commitment) and Billings West offensive lineman Jacob Anderson (an Oregon State commitment) are the two ahead of Jones.
Other college football programs to offer Jones were hometown Montana, Montana Tech, and Columbia. Among the schools to offer him for baseball was Utah in the Pac-12. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound player also plays hockey.
Jones earned an all-state selection at running back for his 2021 season. In 11 games, Jones rushed for 912 yards and 16 touchdowns on 183 carries (5.0 yards per carry), and he caught 24 passes for 245 yards and three touchdowns, according to MaxPreps. He also had 13 tackles and two pass deflections as a safety.
Jones had 229 total yards and five touchdowns in Sentinel’s 42-21 State AA semifinal victory over Kalispell Glacier last fall.
Jones is MSU’s sixth known commitment of the Class of 2023, joining Bozeman offensive lineman Everett Carr; Spring Valley, California, running back Major Givens; defensive lineman Helena Capital Talon Marsh; Meridian, Idaho; lineman O Zac Nyland; and Owasso, Oklahoma, quarterback Chance Wilson.
The Cats have one Sentinel player on their current roster: Rylan Ortt, a defensive back entering his second season in a redshirt.
