WR Jones commits to App State

Wide receiver Malachi Jones (Lawrenceville, Ga./Central Gwinnett) put up some monster numbers as a senior and grabbed the attention of a few schools. One was Appalachian State, which he visited this weekend.

"He committed to Appalachian State this morning," said Todd Wofford, Central Gwinnett's coach. "They are moving to Conference USA in two seasons, and he wanted to be a part of that. He loves their facilities, the guys on the team and the stadium. He likes how they spread the ball out and says he can come in a make an immediate impact."

Jones, 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, caught 82 passes for 1,059 yards and 14 touchdown receptions. Jones committed to Appalachian State over Louisiana Monroe (1-13) and William and Mary.
