2012 University of Miami (FL) Commit WR D'Mauri Jones
Carver Heights Quarterback Club, Leesburg High School, Leesburg, Florida
Is D'Mauri Jones The Greatest Athlete Ever At Leesburg High
School

Jones is your typical 6-foot-5 deep threat receiver. He has knack for getting over the top of defenders. If
a jump ball is thrown his way, chances are he comes down with it. He has good hands and tucks the
ball quickly after the catch. Using his long strides and ability to change of direction, he makes a lot of
plays downfield, especially in the end zone. He has good vertical ability as well, making him a threat for
the jump ball and fade routes. He needs to add some weight to fill out his long frame. While at the prep
level this is not an issue, corners become more physical in college and the weight will help with that.

Head Coach Randy Trivers, who was an assistant at Rutgers and Syracuse of the Big East, has a drill
where he puts three men on the big Jones and sees who comes up with the ball. He also sees similar
stop-gaps in games.

"Before games and afterward, during practice, I work on my own little stuff to get those kinds of balls,"
Jones said.

Jones has recovered from a early season high ankle sprain and had a offensive explosion in the game
against South Lake. Jones four touchdown receptions showed how unstoppable he is one on one and
in the red zone. The talented Jones is the first LHS football player to make a verbal commitment to a
FBS school before his senior season. Not since the days of Oran Singleton has Leesburg had an
explosive offensive player like Jones.

During his career opposing defensive coaches have had to form a game plan around stopping Jones.
Jones has routinely beat double and triple team coverages for big plays. Jones can take a two yard
pass and turn it into a 80 yard gain.

Friday night may be the last time that the Jacket Nation may see Jones in the Orange and Black at
Hubert O. Dabney Stadium. Rarely do you see a player of Jones caliber at Leesburg or any other
school. Just ask any fan who saw Greg Williams in 1968 or Oran Singleton in 1990-1992.
