Per ESPN, made his top seven.

ESPNU 150 athlete Tai-ler Jones told affiliate Web site Bucknuts.com, "I made a top seven. It's Ohio State, Georgia, Notre Dame, Cal, UCLA, North Carolina and Stanford. I wanted to name a top five, but I just felt like I couldn't decide which two to cut. So I decided on a top seven."

Jones has visited Ohio State, Notre Dame and Georgia. He plans to visit North Carolina this weekend. A California trip to Cal, UCLA and Stanford over Jones' spring break could be next.

Programs such as Oklahoma, South Carolina, Miami, Michigan State, Tennessee and Clemson have been eliminated from contention.

The Gainesville, Ga. product, who plans to graduate early, added, "Chances are good I'll commit by the end of April."

Last fall, he caught 81 passes for 979 yards (12.1 average) and 12 touchdowns. On defense, he posted 28 tackles and two interceptions.

Actually, it doesn't look like he is after all. Rivals has him visiting UNC this weekend, then going out to CA to look at 2 schools. No mention of him coming to ND. And then after spring break he's going to choose schools, so you can pretty much say good-bye to this cat...

Here's an article that is sure to get your hopes up, esp considering that it's from Georgia:

Notre Dame among the finalists for Georgia WR Tai-ler Jones | Inside College Recruiting: Michael Carvell (http://blogs.ajc.com/georgia-football-recruiting/2009/04/13/notre-dame-among-the-finalists-for-georgia-wr-tai-ler-jones/?cxntfid=blogs_georgia_footbal)

Lots of positive ND stuff there, and his dad, God bless him, is working him hard. Check out the replies on the bottom; same old crap you read everywhere about ND.

However, he didn't visit for the spring like he did all his other favorites, so I still say he's a Bulldog...

(but what do I know???)

GO IRISH!!!
04-14-2009, 01:42 PM
I am not too concerned that he did not visit in the Spring. His dad being an alum surely figures he has been on campus before more than a few times. I have a good feeling he is Irish. But, I have been wrong before.

Buuuuuuuuuut...most said Te'o to USC, so Thursday we will either celebrate or move on

Ricochet

He may very well be a bulldog but the ones saying this most likely don't have inside info and are doing nothing more than guessing as many did with Te'o. There was no info that he was going to USC it was just an assumption and some took at a fact even though Te'o and his family hadn't even yet come to a decision.

Howver, according to Steve Wiltfong through twitter is saying he believes it's down to 2 and both University's start with N. So what he's really saying is that he thinks or knows that it's down to Notre Dame or North Carolina.

Also Andre Jones has suggested it's 50-50 with the Irish in the mix so there is reason to believe Wiltfong.

I went on a Georgia board this morning when I couldn't sleep (still on east coast time damn-it), just to see what they were saying, and the feeling there was that he was going to a Stanford commit. WTF?? And then other experts say North Carolina? It's all guesses at this point...

True. He could start for them as a true freshman, and Harbaugh pulled in Andrew Luck last year too, so he could have a nice connection there.

Wow. This one is not over by a longshot for Harbaugh. On the premium sites they have his interviews up and he's saying that he's basically a 'soft verbal' (that makes no sense to me. I mean, then why commit? You're still going to be inundated w/ calls and texts and emails kid. whatever). He's still willing to listen to new offers. Now, we're not a new offer, so I don't know how much we're really in play here, but Harbaugh is still going to have to keep recruiting this kid. And if he blows up his senior year, and he hears places like USC or FL calling, you bet he's going to open up his recruiting. Especially considering how much he says that weather and lifestyle played such a big part.

Now, I really wanted this kid. I think he's a stud, so I'm not going to try and front like I'm glad he didn't verbal to us. But having heard that he's a soft commit, no thanks. Call me when he's ready to sign. I've had enough of the Byron Moores of the world. I think he's a fantastic get for Stanford, but then again he's still not a 'get' yet. I'd say they're number one right now, but they don't have him.

We're lucky in the sense that this isn't a safety that we desperately needed. This is a position of strength, we have great depth here and we still have 3 outstanding prospects coming to SB this weekend (although Cooper will prob play safety in college). McCay is the big fish I'd love to have, and Prater is right there with Jones. If Jones changes his mind, that's awesome, but if not, I'll take a Prater or a McCay thank you very much.

EDIT: Wait until he sees the kinda #'s Tate and Floyd put up this year as opposed to Stanfraud who will run run run...

Great post...if Prater commits that would be ridiculous as i see him on par with some of the great WR's who have come into college the past few years. McCay would also be a huge get and would love to see him play LB in college. All seriousness, i believe we already have a WR committed who is every bit as good and much bigger then Jones. I hope he goes to Stanford, it's always fun beating the recruits who spurn us.

Let me put this to rest. There's nothing "soft" about his verbal. He is a man of class and integrity. He has handled the recruiting process very well, and far far FAR better than most other kids. He has his opinion, and I would recommend everybody stops deriding him for his choice because of what some random website says. I will eat crow if he changes his commitment.

edit: That said, some reports suggest that Montana might verbal to Stanford as well. And that Jones and Montana were talking about playing for Stanford together.

NDinL.A.
04-17-2009, 02:14 AM
Personally, I'm not deriding his choice at all. Stanford's a great academic school. Harbaugh is not a popular guy around here, but I've been giving him credit for a while on this board (regardless of his personality that rubs a bunch of people, esp USC, the wrong way). His teams are very tough, they run the hell out of the ball, and he's a great recruiter. Yeah, he offers the world a scholly, but he gets a lot of guys to either commit or strongly consider committing, guys that people have pegged to UCLA, USC, and yes, even ND.

But I completely agree with you saying "there is nothing soft about his verbal." Ummmm, when you say that you are willing to listen to new offers, and that you will take your 5 official visits, that sounds to me like, well, you are still willing to explore your options. Where you get saying that he's not soft is beyond me. Yes, he said nice things about Stanford, but he said nice things about a lot of schools. The thing that sticks in my mind is...I'M WILLING TO LISTEN TO NEW OFFERS. How in thw world is that a strong commit. Just because he has class and dignity, which I don't argue at all, doesn't take away from the fat that he said those things. He may still go to Stanford, but that doesn't mean he isn't a soft commit.

You want a strong commit? Go look up Chris Martin. He tells everyone who will calls that he appreciates the offer and the love, but he is firmly an ND commit, and then he politely says good bye and hangs up. Now THAT is a strong commit...

It is VERY rare to find any recruit that speaks negatively of any school. They only say the positive aspects of that school.

Also, you're looking at the visits through the glasses of a domer. In recent years, CW has been stung by the decommits, which is why he instituted that rule, no visits after commit. Not all schools have that. Most OSU commits and USC commits visit other schools before sign-in day. As do recruits that have committed to most other schools. Granted, it puts them as a higher risk to decommit than ND recruits, but that again depends on the attitude of the kid, and his character. I can tell you that Jones is not like that. It's as solid as they come.

While CW's rule fits his coaching philosophy, its neither right nor wrong for a prospect to take visits after a "verbal commitment."

Let me put this to rest. There's nothing "soft" about his verbal. He is a man of class and integrity. He has handled the recruiting process very well, and far far FAR better than most other kids.

my listing him as a soft verbal has nothing to do with me challenging his integrity. He said himself, with his own word, using his own mouth that he is going to take official visits to other schools despite his "commitment." anytime someone says they're committed but are going to take additional visits to other schools, i think it's justified to question the seriousness of the commitment.

if he doesn't change his commitment, or never takes a visit, then good for him.


He has his opinion, and I would recommend everybody stops deriding him for his choice because of what some random website says. I will eat crow if he changes his commitment.

can you please quote for me the exact "deriding him for his choice" that we are so guilty of? the only comments I see are "good luck to him" etc. Callig his commitment "soft" when he says he is going to continue to consider offers and take visits is not "deriding him for his choice." That's calling a spade, a spade.

because of what some random website says? what random site are you referring to? the random site that interviewed him and recorded his statement that he is taking visits? or do you mean the random recruiting website you're relying on about Montana and Tailer allegedly discussing playing together? I assume you weren't apart of those conversations, so you must be relying on some random website to get that information.

While CW's rule fits his coaching philosophy, its neither right nor wrong for a prospect to take visits after a "verbal commitment."

you yourself recognize that a player who takes visits after a "commitment" is more likely to decommit than another verbal commit. and i believe there are statistics on it that strongly favor a decommitment once a "verbal commit" starts taking visits to other schools.

so don't come here acting like we are way out in left field when we simply note that he says he's going to take visits, after he makes a commitment. you're not the only one who follows recruiting.

no one said he couldn't take visits after his verbal. but it is justified to say that it necessarily calls into question the seriousness of his commitment. the fact that he may never decommit from Stanford doesn't change that. If he is certain he is going to Stanford, then there is no need for visits. Unless he's simply taking vacations to other schools under the ruse that he is seriously considering them.

he can do whatever he wants with additional visits. and we have the right to discuss those additional visits. no one is doing what Buckeye sites do when they lose a recruit, such as say he now "sucks", or ND never really wanted him, or the kid was afraid of competition, etc, etc.

he made a good choice in a school. good for him. no hard feelings.

SoCal pretty much summed up what I was feeling.

But this quote above, in which you say that he's 'as solid as they come', is simply beyond ridiculous! Are you really saying that even though he admits that he's going to listen to other schools AND he's going to take all his official visits, that his commitment is 'as solid as they come'???????? Please tell me you're kidding. Brother, you're giving OSU fans a bad name (although many on here would say that name is already deserved). Can you really look someone in the eye say that Jones' commitment as just as strong as Chris Martin, who will NOT take official visits, will not look at other schools, and will NOT even talk to any other school other than to say, "No thanks." Are you REALLY trying to sell that argument??? I'd love to hear your rebuttal...

for the record, so no one thinks i am in the sour-grapes, haters club. Good luck to Tai-ler, he picked a great academic school. He looks to be a good recruit. Would have loved to have a son of a former player.

I will have to hope once a year he has a terrible game, though. ;)

Well, if this is as 'solid as they come', as you said earlier, then no commitments are ever solid. Read this article:

Jones Sets ND Official - (http://www.irishsportsdaily.com/index.php?option=com_resource&controller=article&article=423&category_id=7&Itemid=83)

He's coming for the USC game to check out more of ND and ND life. I'm not attcking his character at all, just repeating what was reported. And again, if a kid commits early but still wants to take officials, then he's not a strong commit (yet). I hope he changes his mind, but if he doesn't, he's smart to do his due diligence. Being a legacy, we still have a good shot here...

Clausen2Kamara
05-19-2009, 12:12 PM
He is also going to our summer camp for a few days to go along with his official visit...Our staff has a great oppurtunity to build a great relationship with this kid and hopefully he falls in love with ND and realize we have much better talent than Stanford...I think his official will be the key...I know he wants to win and if we're winning, that obviously ups our chances...The game against USC will be HUGE for a lot of these recruits.

I don't think its a matter of talent, but what you do with it. Harbaugh has kicked some ass at Stanford with so pretty feeble talent.

We pretty much dominated Stanford with a 28-7 lead going into the 4th quarter last year...Then we took our foot off the gas...We have much more talent and displayed it last year...just not for 4 quarters...I hope we learned that we can not just sit on a lead...

The final score in that game should have been 42-7. Thats what good teams do. All I am saying is that Harbaugh has done more with less. Hell he has Charlie 1-0 vs USC.

Harbaugh has done well both recruiting and on the field - with what he has. He could end up hurting ND as SU is recruiting the same kind of kids ND does. ND should win most of the head to head battles for the top tier players but considering ND's depth at WR I can understand prospects like Jones looking there.

1-1 vs USC

I think he is referencing the head to head vs SC between Weis and Harbaugh. With Harbaugh having the only victory over the condoms.

Stanford worries me because they pound the football. Until we stop getting blown off the ball, they will be a thorn in the side.

I don't think we'll be getting blown off of the ball much longer. We finally have some beef on the DL in the likes of a few 300 pounders, and I was very impressed with what Hafis did this spring, let's hope he continues to improve.

Per ISD in addition to the previously reported Official to ND for the USC game, Jones is planning an Official to Oregon. He'll also make an Unofficial to Bama for the UTN game. He'll also visit AUB and make an Official to Stanford before deciding.

I'm still solid to Stanford, and just going to these other schools, it just gives me the opportunity to make sure I'm exhausting all measures with this decision. I'm going to be taking a more in-depth look, campus life, the surroundings and a closer look at how the players look at the coaches, and how they think they prepare them, and how prepared they think they'll be for the next level after four or five years.

<!-- begin free preview text -->A source familiar with the recruitment of Under Armour All-American receiver Tai-ler Jones (Gainesville, Ga./Gainesville) says that it would not be surprising if Notre Dame turned the Stanford commit. Jones is visiting South Bend officially this weekend, where he will take in the Irish home game with Southern California.
That's not to say this is a done deal because Jones would not have committed to the Cardinal to begin with had he not believed that was the best place for him, but you've got Notre Dame having a good season, putting up all sorts of passing yards and then there's the fact that his father, Andre Jones, was a member of the 1988 national championship team. That's a lot working in favor of the Irish.
Regardless of what school ends up with Jones, it will be getting a smooth receiver with good hands and deceptive speed that also runs excellent routes. He's a great fit in any offensive system he chooses, but you have to like the possibilities playing in the systems of the Cardinal and the Irish. <!-- end free preview text -->

He gushed about his visit to ISD. Said ND gave him a whole lot to think about. He went on and on about how great everything was, and how he got the entire prospective on everything ND had to offer this time as opposed to his unofficials. Wiltfong got a great feeling after talking to him...

And with that amazing atmosphere, he'll have that in his mind when he takes his official to Stanford for the ND game. That place is a morgue compared to the ND/SC game. He also indicated that he might not even take his scheduled OV to 'Bama next week, nor to Oregon in November...

ESPNU 150 wide receiver Tai-ler Jones (Gainesville, Ga.) has decommitted from Stanford and is now set to sign as part of Notre Dame's Class of 2010, ESPN affiliate Web site IrishSportsDaily.com reports.

Jones was also offered by Alabama, Auburn, Oregon, Miami-FL, Oklahoma, Ohio State, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, UCLA, Tennessee, Clemson, Vanderbilt, Michigan, Michigan State, Florida State, Georgia Tech, USC, Maryland, Arkansas, Kansas, Ole Miss, West Virginia, N.C. State and Kentucky.

Last fall, he caught 81 passes for 979 yards (12.1 average) and 12 touchdowns. Jones also registered 28 tackles and two interceptions, earning all-state recognition.

Sadly, (Prater) may not want to compete with all the receivers coming in - it's a good crop. Yes, he's a 5 star.
ND is competing - they don't just give away diplomas. It's a 50 year commitment - you give it 4 years but it returns for 50 - 60 years. Lou once said about a kid that went somewhere else - wasn't a 4 year mistake - but, a 40 year mistake.
USC graduates 54% - it depends on what you want.

Where do you get the feeling that Prater may not want to compete? I think that's b.s. He committed to USC, where their whole motto is about competition. He said he went to the ND game because he wanted they were playing USC and he wanted to compare offenses, and he wanted to get a feel for ND. He came away very impressed w/ the school and the way CW runs his offense. He said he is still committed to USC, but ND helped itself a lot and are in the mix.

Sadly though, I think he saw the future of SC football, and that Barkley was winging it all over the place, and he's only a freshman. The good news is that there are lot of rumblings that he might want to play closer to home, and that the shine of his USC trip has worn off (thus the soft commitment and the other official visits). SC is still his leader, but we're not out of it...

USC has Williams, Johnson, Butler, Ausberry and about 2,000 other highly rated receivers. The competition isn't a factor.

Jones looks like a very polished receiver coming out of high school and I definitely have to agree with tko's Floyd comparison in that aspect. As an early entry Tai-ler will have as much time as anybody to learn the offense.

Geez I really hope that doesn't come true, it would mean we would have some serious injuries to the receivers we already have. Unless he is a Julio Jones or Michael Floyd, it is rarely ever a good sign when freshmen are starting at one of your deepest positions.

Per an article in ISD, he said he looks forward to winning a National Championship at Notre Dame after spending alot of time looking at his dad's 1988 ring and watch. He also plans on spending time "recruiting" Deitrich Riley & Christian Jones, while he is at the Under Armour game and selling them on why he is going to ND and why they should come with him.

On a side note, I love this kid's fire and enthusiasm.

Aggravated a high ankle sprain that he knew would be a problem coming into this week. He hurt it early in the practice (going against, ironically, Josh Shaw and then Cody Riggs), and he told ISD that he'll probably be out the rest of the week. He wants to try to be 100% by the time he gets on campus in 2 weeks. ESPN guys have been saying that they are impressed with him and that he'll be a perfect fit in Kelly's offense.

I hope he spends the rest of his week stealthily placing tape recorders under the pillows of Riggs, Riley, and Jones. These tape recorders will send subliminal messages that when decoded read, " You were born to play at Notre Dame, you need to play at Notre Dame, there is no other option but Notre Dame" That's how I would spend my time recuperating.

LSU is coming after him hard. I'm not worried at all, because he'll be an EE, his dad is an alum and once he meets Kelly on the 5th he'll be more than sold, but still, his quotes don't exactly give me the fuzzy-wuzzies.

Of course, this is what goes on in the recruiting game. I'd advise you not even to worry; he'll be Irish in under 2 weeks...

Yes, it is late and that's the unsettling part.

On the 31st he said If I decide to stay with them then Ill leave the next weekend. His words at that time left the door open. A simple, "I'm set. We drive to ND the week after the Bowl Game," would have been a definitive statement.

"If I decide to stay with them ..." doesn't translate well like the Gator chomps and Nole Tomahawk motions other recruits are doing at their bowl interviews.

I am holding out a lot of hope for Jones this season. He runs great routes and always seems to get open when the play collapses. I can't tell you how many times I was screaming at the TV last year, because I saw Jones wide open and we decided to throw elsewhere (forced it to Floyd).

Professional football analysts are seeing what Coach saw. TJ is a reason why I haven't been as nervous about our receivers this year [despite the big guy leaving for the NFL].

Agreed, from my point of view, most of the receivers will do better because Floyd seemed to be the #1 option for 90% of the passing plays last year. Jones had plenty of nice plays last year, he just never got the ball in his hands.

Keith Arnold just posted a new article: Biletnikoff watch list includes TJ Jones (http://irish.nbcsports.com/2012/07/17/biletnikoff-watch-list-includes-tj-jones/).

Putting the 2011 season in the rearview mirror is probably the best thing for Jones and the Irish offense. After an emotional pregame ceremony honored Andre Jones and other members lost in the Irish football family, Jones opened the season on the wrong side of Brian Kelly’s purple-faced tirade, drawing the ire of the head coach when he let a Tommy Rees pass bounce off his helmet deep in the red zone during the Irish’s crushing 23-20 loss to South Florida. It’s hard to imagine that Jones’ afternoon against the Bulls, where he caught six passes for 58 yards, would be his most prolific output of the season, especially with defenses needing to pay attention to both Floyd and tight end Tyler Eifert. Yet Jones was largely a non-factor after a promising rookie campaign, making plenty of Irish fans wonder if Jones had reached his ceiling.

Still, there’s every reason to think that one wide receiver will emerge as an explosive option in Brian Kelly’s offense, if only because that seems to happen every season for Kelly. In his first two years at Notre Dame, that was Floyd. At Cincinnati, it was Mardy Gilyard, while at Central Michigan a mostly anonymous cast of characters still only failed to produce an 800+ yard season during Kelly’s first season with the Chippewas.

Thought he had a pretty good game and is having a prett good season. He is really attacking the ball in the air this year.

Him and DD are playing solid. Should be a dynamic receiving crew next year with TJ, DD (who's catching everything, in bounds and out), Neal and Chris Breezy.

Speaking of C. Breezy, and although this is TJ's thread, it looked like BK was trying to get Brown involved early and often against scUM. Golson's first pass that was intercepted was intended for Brown, and I think I recall him being targeted a few other times early. Of course, the offense had to go into conservative mode early on, so he didn't really have an opportunity to show anything. Hopefully the bye week allows BK to find a way to work Brown's deep speed into the offense a bit more moving forward.

If golson put more loft on that 1st throw, Brown would have been gone... Brown beat the CB who picked it off, I dont remember where the safety was exactly, but the CB was beaten by Brown. Golson under-threw that ball badly...

safety was over top and there was another safety across the field with the angle...he would of had to make a few moves

Basically this. Jordan Kovacs was coming across and Golson misjudged the air he needed to fit the ball between the corner and safety. Brown definitely wouldn't have been gone, more like a 25 yard gain.
