"I just sat down with my family, kind of made a list of pros and cons, and decided I love college and I love being in Alabama," Jones said. "I love putting on the crimson jersey and I have a great group of friends. I'm in no hurry to get to the NFL. I definitely want to play in the NFL one day. But I'm not in a rush. I have one more year of college and I'm really excited about it."
Jones went on to say that it was a very difficult decision and nothing in particular swayed his decision, but it was a myriad of different things. Currently, Jones is the left tackle for Alabama, but he has experience all over the offensive line and his position for the 2012 season is still unknown.
