ATLANTA -- Junior offensive tackle William Jones (Augusta, Ga./Richmond Academy) recently learned one of the fundamental rules of being a big-name college athlete: always have a pen on you.

At last month's Rising Seniors camp here, an unidentified man came up to Jones and asked for his autograph. Jones, who had to borrow a pen, obliged the grateful fellow, giving the first autograph of his career.

"Well, that was a pretty interesting experience," Jones said. "But an autograph is an autograph."
