4-Star Alabama QB Commit Mac Jones Is Keeping Recruitment Open, May Not Enroll Early

Mac Jones, four-star Crimson Tide commit, is leaving the door open for other schools to recruit him, given the QB situation at Alabama.

Things are complicated for QB Mac Jones, the four-star Alabama commit from Jacksonville, FL. He committed to the Crimson Tide in June with the intent of graduating early and enrolling at Alabama in January, but a lot of things have changed since then.

First, there was the emergence of freshman sensation Jalen Hurts, who took the SEC by storm, earning All-SEC honors in the process. To complicate things further, the Tide have another talented QB on the way, in incoming freshman Tua Tagovailoa.

Per Tide Sports:

"It's a tough situation," Jones said. "You have a freshman who played really well his first year and you have an incoming player in Tua who has the potential to be a very good quarterback at Alabama. I'm not scared of competition. It's a big task ahead of me to think I can go in and play. I know I will have to work and fight my way into the battle."

Still, Jones is keeping his options open for the time being:

"I don't think I am graduating early anymore," said Jones. "Missouri wants me to come up for an official visit. That's really the only other school coming after me right now. It's a possibility I could visit other schools. I have a lot of time, but I know my Alabama official visit will be in January.

As of today, Oklahoma State has made Jones an offer, per 247Sports.
