 Deon Jones, James Madison, Player News

  Jones spent the first three years of his college career at Maryland before graduating and moving up the east coast to Boston College for two years. He played in nine games with the Eagles in his first year at Boston College, but suffered a knee injury against Virginia in the team's season finale. That injury limited Jones to just two games in the 2021 season, but he said he feels healthy at the end of the spring practices with JMU. In his transition from Maryland to Boston College, Jones said he got comfortable and it allowed him to become complacent at times. He said he learned his lesson from that and this season, Jones is set on staying outside of his comfort zone with the Dukes. "I actually like feeling uncomfortable because you don't get complacent," Jones said. "When you uncomfortable, your head is down and you on grind mode. I don't want to get complacent." One of the things keeping Jones uncomfortable is learning a new system he hasn't played in before.

At both Maryland and Boston College, Jones played as a single-high safety, but at JMU he's learning the two-high safety shell. Jones, who said he's still learning the defense, isn't afraid to learn from younger players or older players at JMU because he's "new to the program" and is willing to listen to anyone. "Just understanding that I don't have everything together yet, I'm still learning," Jones said. "If it's from a younger guy, I can learn from him. If it's from an older guy, I can learn from him." - Daily News-Record
