Wednesday evening ESPNU 150 Watch List running back Matt Jones (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) will commit to Florida and become head coach Will Muschamp's first big "get" on the recruiting trail in the Class of 2012. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Jones has the potential to be an excellent prospect whether he's a running back or moves to another position. He is big and has breakaway speed that often catches on lookers by surprise. But he can also be frustrating to watch -- the ultimate tease. By this point in his career most expected Jones to have had a 2,000-yard season, especially in front of a talented, physical offensive line that features fellow Watch List member Cody Waldrop.
