Three-star ILB Walker Jones nears decision

7/18/2012

Walker Jones' recruitment is drawing to a close.

The inside linebacker from Germantown (Tenn.) Evangelical Christian told ESPN on Wednesday that he plans to announce his college decision Monday or Tuesday. He said he is primarily considering Alabama, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi State.

There are strong ties to Alabama. His older two brothers, Barrett and Harrison Jones, are on the Crimson Tide's roster. Barrett is a senior offensive tackle. Harrison is a sophomore tight end.

However, the Jones family has long said Walker is the most independent of the trio. He has maintained that he will make a decision on his own and not based on where his brothers are playing.
