Thought I'd drop this in this thread as well since it's also about DJ, not just Dax...

Hill and Jones benefit by going against one of the state’s top receivers, the 6-foot-4 Hester, during practice.

“He’s great competition, with the way he can move and he’s a long receiver,” Hill said.

Added Jones, “It’s very competitive. He (Hester) knows what I like to do and I know what he likes to do. Guarding him is fun.”

While Hill was No. 4 in the rankings last summer and being strongly recruited by colleges, Jones was under the radar for recruiters.

“He never got a look until October,” Calip said. “I talked with (OSU assistant) coach (Tim) Duffie about this corner (Jones) who was getting overlooked because we had (Rylan) McQuarters, Dax and JJ. I told him he’s a typical Division I corner, 6-foot with a wingspan just incredible.”

From Guerin Emig...

This year Christmas comes six days early for DJ Jones, the Booker T. Washington cornerback set to sign with Oklahoma State on Wednesday.

“I talked to DJ’s grandmother at our banquet. She’s a big OSU fan,” Booker T. coach Brad Calip said, “and she’s been collecting OSU Christmas ornaments for 20 years. So he has been seeing this since he was a little bitty kid. That’s who he always wanted to play for.”

“After I sign,” Jones said, “it’ll be a dream come true, honestly.”
Also, regarding his October injury...

Jones committed to the Cowboys down the stretch of last basketball season. His senior football season was supposed to be the bow on the package, with the uncertainty behind him, but then he tore his labrum colliding with 6-foot-5 Sapulpa quarterback Eli Williams on Oct. 12.

“My first big injury,” Jones said. “It was a real adjustment. I was very depressed. I love the game so much and I hated to see my teammates play when I couldn’t.”

Jones stressed about the present and the future. He saw football at OSU as a dream fulfilled, sure, but also as a golden ticket to a college education.

Jones said Duffie and Mike Gundy called after the injury to ease any concern. The offer was good, they told him, just get to work on your rehab so you can come help us next summer.
