Minnesota Football Recruiting: Donovahn Jones Officially Signs

How he fits

Jones is a special athlete at the quarterback position and can simply make plays in the open field. He's relatively new to the quarterback position but has a big arm and can hit receivers for big chunks of yardage down field with the defense keyed in on his running ability. High school film displayed an ability to run the option and make defenders miss with athletic moves and pure quickness.

Chances to play in 2013

As with Streveler, the chances are actually fairly high given the lack of depth at the quarterback spot. Phillip Nelson is the only QB with any playing experience on the roster and everyone on the depth chart is an underclassmen. Similar to what Kill did with Chandler Harnish and Jordan Lynch back at NIU, the staff could choose to bring in either Jones or Streveler to keep Nelson fresh and get another playmaker on the field.
