Another Jones on the horizon


Barrett Jones has already made a name for himself at Alabama. He was the Outland Trophy winner last season.

His father, Rex, played basketball at Alabama in the early 1980s, and one of his brothers, Harrison, is currently a tight end for the Crimson Tide.

Another Jones is on the way to college football. Younger brother Walker, a high school linebacker from Cordova, Tenn., has received offers from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Purdue, Cincinnati and Alabama.

But even with his family's long history at Alabama, Walker Jones says it's not a given that he will sign with the Crimson Tide.
