DaMario Jones commits to Michigan

10/31/2012

Michigan has been searching for another wide receiver prospect in the 2013 class, and it seems that it has found that target. Wide receiver DaMario Jones (Westland, Mich./John Glenn) received an offer from the Wolverines on Tuesday and committed on the spot.

"It's one of the best things that has ever happened to me," he said. "I talked with the Coach [Brady] Hoke and Coach [Jeff] Hecklinski, and they asked me if I would like the opportunity to play there."

Jones said he had no hesitation on committing when he received the offer and let the coaches know right there that he would be a Wolverine.

"I jumped on the opportunity. It's close to home, the academics are great and the coaches are great," he said. "My family loves the coaches and they love the academic side, too."

Jones had been to Michigan's camp, visited for several games and was even on hand for the summer BBQ at the Big House. He had put in the hard work and hoped something like this would happen.

"When I was training with my uncle over the summer to go to Michigan's camp, he told me to work hard, do my best and have fun and everything will fall into place," he said. "I believed that and now it shows. I'm not done with my work. I still have a lot to improve, but it's just nice to know that it's paying off now."

Jones makes No. 23 for commits in the 2013 class and is the third wide receiver commit for Michigan.
