Tony Jones, Jr., a 5’11”, 210 pound running back from sunny Saint Petersburg, has the toughness, escapability and moves that make new Irish fans think of Deon McIntosh and longtime Irish fans think of Tarean Folston.
Jones, Jr. attends IMG Academy, after transferring from St. Petersburg Catholic. His father was a fullback and lineback for the Tampa Bay Storm.
The three-star player is a bruising, punishing runner and his talent drew interest and offers from Florida, the U, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Pitt, and Cincinnati. He is rated as the 21st best player in the country at his position and the 75th best player in Florida, making him the number one player overall in Missouri or Kansas.
Tony was recruited by Autry Denson.

Bayou Irish is a Jersey boy and Double Domer who fell under New Orleans' spell in 1995. He's been through Katrina and fourteen years in the Coast Guard, so we cut him some slack, mostly in the form of HLS-subsidized sazeracs. But, when he's not face down on the bar and communing with the ghosts of Faulkner and Capote at the Carousel Bar in the Hotel Monteleone, he's our man in SEC-land, doing his best to convince everyone around him that Graduation Success Rate is a better indicator of success than the number of MNC's won in the last five years.
