Austin (TX) High wide receiver Cayleb Jones is one of the top prospects in the 2012 recruiting class. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound wide out already holds double-digit scholarship offers and he has yet to play a game as a junior.

"Right now I have offers from Baylor, East Carolina, Iowa State, Miami (FL), North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa and South Florida," said Jones.

Texas and Oklahoma are among the other schools have been showing heavy interest.

Jones claims to be wide-open in his recruitment, but there are a few schools that have recently caught his eye.

Texas- "Texas is like the home team for me. I'm from Austin and my family is here to. I like their program."

Miami- "They put a lot of good players in the NFL. They also have a real good offense that they run."

Texas A&M- "They are real close to home but they are far enough away that it would be a different kind of experience for me if I went there."

Jones did not make it to any camps this summer. Instead, he was focusing on improving several aspects of his game for the upcoming season.

"I've been working on being a strong leader for my team, trying to become more mentally tough. I've also been focusing on becoming stronger, faster as well as running better routes."

Jones put up solid numbers last season as a sophomore and plans to contribute even more in other aspects as a junior.

"I'm going to see more double teams this year on offense so I want to try and make a difference on special teams. I'm going to be returning punts and kicks so hopefully I can take a few back for touchdowns."

Jones will also be getting some snaps at free safety as well as at quarterback in the wildcat formation.

Jones plans on attending a few Longhorns games this fall as well as some out of state games.

"Right now I know I will be watching Texas play a lot since I live here. I'm also going to go and catch a game at Auburn. Auburn isn't recruiting me, but my cousin plays there. Those are the only games I know about right now."

Jones finished his sophomore season with 1,158 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. He also rushed for 100 yards and three touchdowns. Austin HS open their season on August 27 when they face Waco.
