Three-star cornerback Jemaurian Jones decommitted from Mississippi State on April 9, less than a month after he initially pledged to the Bulldogs, and since he announced his decommittment, offers from other programs have started coming in.
“Florida State, Georgia and Tennessee are some great offers,” Jones told GN. “For me being from Mississippi it’s a great opportunity.”
Jones, from Brookhaven (Miss.) High, is a top-20 overall recruit in Mississippi for the class of 2018.
Jones — who says he now is bigger than his listed size of 6 feet 1 and 170 pounds — has received offers from Florida State, Georgia and Tennessee since the beginning of May.
“I don’t know how it happened; it just came out of the blue,” Jones said. “Me being a 6-2, underrated corner — you won’t find too many 6-2, 180-pound cornerbacks like myself, with the size, length, speed and physicality.
“Florida State made the first jump; Georgia and Tennessee followed. So, hopefully more good things are coming for me.”

Jones says decommitting from Mississippi State was not an easy thing to do.
“It was very hard. It was a very hard decision for me to decommit, but I felt like it was a little early to shut other schools down and to end my recruiting process,” he said. “I hopped back in the market and other schools started contacting me.
“They liked my film and my information and my background. Things just started falling into place, and that’s where I’m at today.”
