Illinois Football Recruiting: Joshua Jones Visits Pittsburgh

2013 safety Joshua Jones officially visited the Pittsburgh Panthers on January 11th.

Jones committed to Illinois on June 29th, 2012, but has not signed his letter of intent.

He is a 6’2″, 200 pound safety from Walled Lake, Michigan. He played this past season at Walled Lake Western High School.

Walled Lake Western made it to the quarterfinals of the Division 2 Michigan State Playoffs. However, they lost to eventual state champion, Brother Rice, 12-42.

As a senior in 2012, Jones recorded 95 tackles and five interceptions.

The two-star recruit is currently ranked 41st in the state of Michigan and 150th among safeties by 247Sports.
