The news comes two days after four-star cornerback Geno Smith picked rival Alabama over Auburn.
The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Jones had Georgia Tech, Mississippi State and Texas Tech among his top choices. ESPN ranks Jones as the 22nd best cornerback nationally. Scout has him 38th and Rivals 42nd.
He is considered one of the fastest football prospects in Georgia, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Last May, he won the state 110-meter hurdles (14.02 seconds) and 300-meter hurdles (37.39 seconds).
Jones is the second cornerback in Auburn’s 2012 class, joining Joshua Holsey of Fairburn, Ga.
