Austin Jones looking at walk-on options

Three-star Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy receiver Austin Jones has been offered a preferred walk-on position at three BCS schools and is contemplating his next move.

Illinois, Michigan State and Virginia Tech have issued preferred walk-on spots to Jones, a 6-foot-2, a 171-pound wideout.

"As of right now probably Virginia Tech," Jones said when asked which direction he is leaning toward.

Jones is still holding out hope for some type of help, though. Michigan State could offer him a grayshirt. Jones says he will find out this weekend if the Spartans will offer an option to grayshirt with them.
