Will Cyrus Jones commit to Alabama or Virginia Tech Thursday on ESPN?
Cyrus Jones, one of the top athletes in the country, is set to commit to either the Alabama Crimson Tide or the Virginia Tech Hokies. Jones will make his announcement Thursday night during the Under Armour All-America Game on ESPN (7:30 p.m. ET).
Jones holds multiple offers from some of the top schools in the country, including Alabama, Virginia Tech, Auburn, Ohio State and Maryland. He visited Virginia Tech on September 16th, Alabama on October 21st, Auburn on November 25th and Ohio State on December 16th.
Jones stars for Baltimore' Gilman School as a two-way player. In college, however, it is thought that he is looking to play receiver. At 5'10" and 195 pounds, that means lining up in the slot. During the Under Armour practices, Jones has primarily played defensive back, and has done well on that side of the ball.
Alabama is thought to have a major lead here.
