Top 2012 OL Back in the Valley


Oliver Jones, one of the top 2012 linemen in the Southeast, was back in Death Valley Saturday afternoon.

“It was great.  I came up with my teammate T.J. Chambers.  I really enjoy myself every time I go up there,” said Jones.

The Ninety Six standout was impressed with how the Clemson offensive line dominated the game.

“I was impressed with the offensive line.  They dominated from start to finish.  They really manhandled the Tech line,” said Jones.

The final drive where Clemson put the game away really impressed the top lineman.

“That is what you have to do.  When everyone in the stadium knows you are going to run and you still get it done,” said Jones.

When asked about his current offer list, Jones responded, “Right now I have offers from Clemson and South Carolina.”

“I am rehabbing my femur now.  I go in November for my ACL.  After that we will be all set,” said Jones.

There is no timing for the junior on when he would like to make a commitment.

“I couldn’t even tell you.  I am not playing this year.  I will probably wait until my senior season, but it will be whenever it hits me,” said Jones.

Expect to see the Palmetto standout back in the Valley later this year.

“I will definitely be back for the South Carolina game,” said Jones.
