June Jones Stops By Bishop Dunne
The Jones SMU fans have come to know would never be making in-school visits this early in the game. But this reinvented Jones, deemed the caped crusader, has been making his presence felt in the Dallas-area the past two weeks and visited top 2014 prospects Nick Watkins and Jovan Pruitt at Bishop Dunne on Monday morning.
"Everything went pretty well. It was great to meet Coach Jones," Pruitt said. "He didn't offer me but after talking to him, I'm sure he will on junior day. Both me and Nick will be there for sure. He told me and Nick that he really liked us and wanted to make sure we would both be there. Overall, Coach Jones was a pretty cool."
But it wasn't just Jones that made the trip. Pruitt said he got to meet nearly the entire SMU coaching staff including strength and conditioning coach Mel deLaura. The effort amazed the 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive lineman.
"Coach Jones was great, but their whole coaching staff was here," Pruitt said. "It was pretty impressive. I got to talk to everyone from the defensive line coach to the strength and conditioning coach. Nick and I thought they were all cool guys."
Watkins is easily one of the top defensive backs in the state and holds double digit offers while Pruitt holds offers from Texas and Colorado State. Both will visit Texas and Baylor for their junior days, but Pruitt says staying close to home and playing for SMU could be a possibility.
"Nick and I have a really busy schedule since we'll be going to a bunch of junior days next month. But we're interested in SMU that's why we'll be there on February 16," Pruitt said. "I don't know too much about them but I plan to do more research. But I like the offense and it's close to home and I'm looking forward to the visit."
Pruitt says the recruiting process is starting to get a little hectic, but he and Watkins are hard at work this offseason to make sure Bishop Dunne doesn't fall in the first round for the second year in a row.
"It's all about lifting and agility in the spring," he said. "I feel like I have great size and strength so I'm a dominant run blocker. But I need to improve a little bit as a pass blocker and keep getting faster. We have big goals for next season."
