NCF On The Trail: Bryson Gates

Rams top BCS offers for Jyaz Jones

May, 17, 2013
Coveted safety Jyaz Jones (Dallas/South Oak Cliff) committed to play in the Mountain West Conference for Colorado State, multiple sources report.

Baylor, Iowa, Nebraska, New Mexico State and Texas Tech also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-1, 180-pound prospect. Programs such as LSU, Southern Methodist and Texas showed interest.

Jones posted impressive combine figures on the Nike circuit, including a 4.67-second 40-yard dash, 4.01-second 20-yard shuttle and 32.5-foot power throw.

His older brother, Class of 2013 wide receiver Anjeus Jones, originally committed to Colorado State before signing with Iowa.

The Rams have two verbals for 2014. Athlete Bryson Gates (Fairfield, Texas/Fairfield) also committed this week.

Rams start class with versatile Texan

May, 16, 2013
Athlete Bryson Gates (Fairfield, Texas/Fairfield) has become Colorado State's first Class of 2014 verbal, the Coloradoan reports.

Gates plays safety, inside and outside linebacker, wide receiver and running back for Fairfield. Even his coach, John Bachtel, is unsure of Gates' future landing spot: "To be honest, I don't know what position he'll be best at."

The Rams are his only scholarship offer at this time, but TCU was showing interest in the 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect.
