One on one: Antonio Jones

Antonio Jones is part of a deep linebacker rotation. He was considered one of the top talents in Dallas as a senior for 4A State Finalist Dallas Lincoln, and chose Baylor over offers from Georgia Tech, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, and Tulsa in 2005.

He redshirted as a true freshman and recorded 44 tackles starting the first three games of the season as a redshirt freshman in 2006. He is currently listed No. 2 on the depth chart at WILL Linebacker behind Nick Moore but will likely see quite a bit of time regardless.

We sat down with the 6-2, 224-pound linebacker for a little one-on-one session.
