Jerry Jones' grandson has announced his college commitment. He's following in his grandpa's footsteps.

John Stephen Jones, the grandson of the Dallas Cowboys owner, has committed to Arkansas. It's the alma mater of his grandfather.

Jerry Jones played for the Razorbacks in the early 1960s. He was an all-conference lineman and helped Arkansas win the national title in 1964, when he was a co-captain.

John Stephen Jones is a three-star quarterback recruit in the 2018 class. He committed to the Razorbacks over SMU and Texas Tech, among other programs.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound quarterback received an offer from Arkansas in early December. The offer came a couple of days after Chad Morris was hired.

John Stephen announced his decision on Twitter.

"I am super pumped to announce that I am committed to the University of Arkansas," he wrote.

Jones is undersized, but he's a winner. He led Highland Park to back-to-back state championships. Jones threw for 4,911 yards and 61 touchdowns with just 4 interceptions as a senior.

The quarterback wears No. 9 for former Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo.
