Loyola 2019 WR Noah Jones is set to lead another dangerous Ramblers squad in 2017. We talked his Dartmouth offer, other schools showing the most interest and I also got Loyola head coach John Holecek’s thoughts on Jones.
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 190 lbs
LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason?
NJ: I’ve been working very hard this offseason on taking my game to the next level. I have been working out with my team, focusing on getting stronger and faster. Additionally, I have been spending a lot of time outside of Loyola doing drills and running routes in order to fine tune my skills in that area.
LPI: You currently have one offer from Dartmouth. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?
NJ: I believe that I will bring a high motor and a competitive spirit to a college program. I always push my teammates to be better, which would be an asset at the next level as well. Also I believe I have the potential to be an effective jump ball receiver and a dynamic playmaker in college.
LPI: Besides Dartmouth, which schools have shown serious interest in you?
NJ: Thus far, I have gotten interest from a lot of different schools including Syracuse after I went to their satellite camp this summer at Elmhurst College. Also, I have received interest from Central Michigan, South Dakota, Vanderbilt and Illinois.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits or camps/showcases set?
NJ: I went to Vanderbilt for camp in June, which I really enjoyed. I also plan to go to Central Michigan in the near future.
LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership or go the extra mile for your teammates?
NJ: I believe I demonstrate going the extra mile for my teammates by always make sure I give 100% during every rep in practice, taking good notes during film so that I can improve my performance, and making sure I’m always present. I like to think I lead by example by working hard, staying positive and always going first to demonstrate how to do a drill or demonstrate how they can approach a route or play differently.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Quinn Boyle – Our starting QB. He has been overlooked for sure and can play at the next level with his great accuracy and high football IQ.
Alex King – He’s our tight end, is very talented and any college program would be lucky to have him. He has some of the best hands I’ve seen and is brutally strong.
Jamie Joyce – One of our slot receivers, is extremely quick and has a high football IQ; he’s another player who could be strong at the next level.
Hamid Bullie – Our starting running back. He has great speed, great vision and has D1 ability–no doubt.
Armoni Dixon – One of my 2019 classmates, has great strength, a nose for the football and always makes plays on defense.
Jake Gonzalez – Started all 14 games last year at safety, is always making plays around the football. Jake is a player who always pushed me and is another person I believe can play D1 football in the future.
Loyola Head Coach John Holecek on Jones on and off the field
“Long, smooth with good hands and speed so he has a very high potential. Should be our big playmaker and open up things around him. Good student to boot.”
