The Georgia Bulldogs are still looking for another running back to close out the 2012 class, but that did not stop them from offering one of the top in-state juniors for the 2013 class. Running back Tyren Jones (Marietta, Ga./Walton) led all high school running backs in Georgia this season with 2,375 yards, and scored 38 touchdowns. He was evaluated in games against Lassiter and Grayson, and apparently the Georgia coaches liked what they saw.

“Coach [Bryan] McClendon came to a couple of my games, and when I called him after, he told me that I was a baller,” Jones said. “He came by the school today and told my head coach that Mark Richt was going to call and offer and for me to consider myself having an offer from the University of Georgia,” Jones said.

That is offer No.4 for Jones, with Duke, Oklahoma State and Vanderbilt also extending verbals to the talented junior. Jones is considered by many to be the top tailback in Georgia for 2013.
