Syracuse assistant coach Tyrone Wheatley saw 2014 running back Jeff Jones (Minneapolis/Washburn) on the camp scene this summer, so it is no surprise Syracuse extended an offer to Jones last week.

The ESPN Watch List junior now has seven offers, all from BCS programs.

The Syracuse offer intrigues Jones because Wheatley is the one recruiting him. Wheatley was at Michigan before spending several seasons in the NFL.
