Jones had 70 tackles and two interceptions in 10 games for the Longhorns in 2018. And he's excited about the 2019 season.

"I see where this team is headed and I want to be a part of something great," said Jones. "Getting my degree from The University of Texas was a huge thing to both myself and my mom, and I know that will take me further in life than football. I'm so very grateful for the opportunity to play at such a prestigious level and want to finish what we've started."
