LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Give Cyrus Jones credit for more than just being an electric football prospect. He also knows how to keep a secret. So do his friends. The four-star athlete prospect from Baltimore Gilman has known where he'll be play college football for nearly a month, but unless you're one of his closest friends or a family member, you're in the dark. "They know not to tell anybody," said Jones, the nation's No. 33 prospect. "I trust them, so I decided to go ahead and tell them. I'm sure I can trust them. If not, then we're going to have some problems."
Keeping the secret means the surprise will be unveiled on Thursday during the Under Armour All-America Game. Jones is one of the prospects set to announce his decision during the game telecast.
