From when he committed to the Seminoles:
Jones is, quite simply, a mass of humanity.
Jones had two strong seasons as a starter on the Auburn offensive line in 2020 and 2021, before having a rough 2022 campaign that saw him relegated to second-string duty. There could be numerous reasons for this as Auburn’s 2022 season was...complicated, to say the least.
If anything, it’ll be fascinating to see what Atkins and strength coach Josh Storms can do with Jones, who has two seasons of eligibility remaining. If Storms can help Jones reshape his body, and Atkins can sharpen Jones’ technique and instill more confidence, the results could be, ahem, massive.
