Cyrus Jones Commits To Alabama Crimson Tide Over Virginia Tech Hokies

Cyrus Jones

Alabama grabs a quick slot receiver.

Cyrus Jones, one of the top athletes in the country, committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide over the Virginia Tech Hokies Thursday night during the Under Armour All-America Game on ESPN.

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. His quickness will be valuable on the offensive side of the football, but don't be surprised to see him flip back to the defensive side if playing time is not immediately available.

Alabama is thought to have a major lead here.
