Anybody know where he probably ends up??


I know he's taking a visit to Texas Tech over Auburn, him and Crabtree would be extremely sick together in that offense

Alabama
Florida
Florida St
Oklahoma
Texas Tech


those are the schools he will visit

It's probably Alabama or Oklahoma now, in that order. FSU and Texas Tech are on the outside looking in.

I think it will probably be Alabama. Not only is it his hometown team, but Nick Saban is possibly the most charming recruiter ever. =D

I thought Auburn was his hometown team, or closer, I could be wrong though...


I just think as of lately, when those top wr recruits visit Tech, depending on what they value the most when they know they are going to catch over 100 balls with plenty of chances to stay on the field its hard to turn that down...and Tech could sneak into a BCS game one year, alot of teams arent built to play defense vs the spread the way they run it...

Nah Bamas a joke and will never be good in the saban-era... However Julio Jones in Oklahoma would be SICK with Sam Bradford throwing to him.. UNREAL but I doubt he goes to Tech im sure he wants to be "the Man"

The recruit's parents seem to love the guy. I guess he is a very charming individual if you talk to him exclusively.

After you win the parents over, your only job is to make the recruit feel like they aren't being forced into the decision.

Good point there he may be quite the charmer but not near as good as Zook I dont know how the guy does it, good recruiters tend to not be great coaches except for Pete however theres no logic in the way he recruits with stacking the RBs and losing depth in other positions...

Oklahoma? Where did you hear that?

Oklahoma? Where did you hear that?Julio's high school coach made some comments a while ago saying that he wasn't a guarantee to stay in-conference, and that in particular he was looking at Oklahoma.

Julio and Robert Lester, an Alabama commit from Julio's school and the reason some people think Julio may be a Bama lean, were going to take an official visit to Oklahoma late October, but demurred and will take the visit after the end of the season.

Oh. I always thought it was Bama and FSU leading. He visits FSU January 12th. Hopefully that will sway him a bit.

I dont know about that recruit the parent thing, alot of recruits go on visits themselves and make that decision on their own, whether it be girls, close to home and friends, playing time, its not so much about the parents, its alot of recruits/students that want to do the exact opposite of what their parents think...

Hell the school is paying for their son to get a free education, its not hard to win over a parent when they know regardless their kid is getting a free education...

Im pretty sure when he goes to Tech and they talk to him about getting the chance to catch 100 balls, have a chance to win numerous awards, thats going to play a huge role depending on what type of kid he is and what he values...But what parents arent going to fall in love with ANY D-1 coach that walks into their living room trying to give their son a free education?? All those coaches are pretty much the same to parents

With his talent, the odds are high that he'll be the man no matter who is there.

anywhere except texas tech.

I think he's definitely better than Crabtree from a talent standpoint. As far as best WR on his team, if he didn't go to Florida or USC, he'd accomplish that by his sophomore year if he lives up to his ability.

Thats debatable...Crabtree needed to redshirt because he was changing positions from qb to wr, but seeing the development he took in only a year at the wr position, he certainly has alot of athletic ability to back it up...His acceleration after the catch and running with the ball is as good as you will see, granted I got to see more of Crabtree in high school then Jones, but I think its a long shot for any wr to come to Tech and be the most talented guy over him..

I don't know why, but I just have a gut feeling that he is a Nole on NSD. I think Jimbo being announced as successor to Bobby will play a huge role. It was Jimbo's dream job, so he wouldn't be going anywhere for a while.

Oklahoma's co-offensive coordinator, passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach, Kevin Sumlin, took the head coaching vacancy at Houston today.

This is a HUGE blow to Oklahoma's chances to get Julio. I mean, just look at his job title.

It's probably down to Bama and FSU now.

Uhhh Star Jackson. Anyways, with JPW playing like crap that didn't keep DJ Hall from having a great season. He is a senior too finally, thank god.

Nick Fanuzzi is a name everyone should remember, and Star Jackson will get his chances too. AJ McCarron is a high school junior and a virtual Bama lock, but he probably won't see the field for two years (Senior year and a redshirt season).

Those three are the future for Alabama at quarterback.
