Jarrian Jones chose to join the Mississippi State football team over Oklahoma and Alabama. Go ahead and start learning more about the four-star safety from Flowood, Mississippi.

It probably wasn’t easy getting Jarrian Jones to arrive in Starkville. Charles Huff, the Mississippi State football assistant coach in charge of recruiting the talented safety, did just that though, beating out some of the best teams in the country for his commitment and then his national letter of intent.

Oklahoma, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Minnesota, and Ole Miss were all vying right alongside Mississippi State to get Jones to join their respective programs.

As you can see now, that clearly didn’t work out for anyone but MSU.

Huff, Joe Moorhead, and the Mississippi State football team found a way to get Jones to land in Starkville and become a Mississippi State Bulldog. Then the Mississippi State Bulldogs convinced Jones to sign early and prevented any sort of late drama for the Mississippi State football team in the process.

Jones, at 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, is one of the highest rated recruits in the state of Mississippi. After a successful career with Northwest Rankin High School in Flowood, Mississippi, Jones came out as a four-star recruit and is the No. 13 recruit in the state of Mississippi for this recruiting cycle.

He also happens to be the No. 18 safety in the country this season as well.

For the Mississippi State Bulldogs to keep Jones in the state and coming to Starkville is certainly an accomplishment for Joe Moorhead to be proud of.
