Oklahoma Offers Nacogdoches Sophomore Brandon Jones

East Texas’ only sophomore with a Division I FBS offer picked up his fourth Thursday morning.

Nacogdoches safety Brandon Jones tweeted that Oklahoma offered him, making the Sooners the third Big 12 program to offer the 2016 standout.

The 6-foot, 185-pound Jones holds offers from the Sooners, Baylor, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech.

Jones, who first saw varsity action as a freshman in 2012, had a breakout sophomore campaign. He finished with 95 tackles, five interceptions, one defensive touchdown, and two punt return touchdowns.

Jones is a key component in what should be a very good Nacogdoches secondary in 2014. He will be a junior at the back end of the unit, while Jaylon Lane will be a senior cornerback. Lane recently moved to Nacogdoches from San Angelo Central, where the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder had 46 tackles and four interceptions.

In addition to being a tough combo in the secondary, Jones and Lane could be a special teams nightmare. Lane averaged 45.8 yards per return on five kickoff returns, including a 108-yard touchdown. He also averaged almost 10 yards per punt return on 13 tries.
