Notable: Jones was committed to FIU prior to flipping to Florida. The young offensive lineman didn’t have a lot of big Division I offers but that was due to changing from defensive line to offensive line as a junior in high school. Desir Jones has a very high ceiling and is a sponge when it comes to learning and being coached.
Quotable: Jason Milgrom, St. Thomas Aquinas co-offensive coordinator -
“He’s one of those types of kids. He’s a gym rat, he’s a film rat, he’s a student of the game and a really, really good pickup for the Gators. His potential, and I hate to use that word, is off the charts.”
