How he fits:

Jones is an immediate impact player. The Under Armour All-American MVP is a potent blend of a great frame, power, foot quickness, vision and open field ability. Jones can make even the best athletes in the nation look silly one-on-one. Jeff should thrive as the feature back in Limegrover's zone running scheme that loves to pound the rock.

Chances to play in 2014:

Heh. When you're the highest rated player the Gophers have ever signed since the Internet started keeping track of these things, there's not a matter of 'if' but 'when.'
