Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Drew Jones of Decatur, Texas, has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Texas in 2016.
Jones also looked at Oklahoma State, Arizona, Oklahoma, Auburn and Michigan. He made unofficial visits to Oklahoma State and Oklahoma prior to making his decision.
The Decatur High School freshman always knew he wanted to play college golf if given the opportunity.
“I feel at home in Austin, and I have a tremendous amount of respect and trust in Coach (John) Fields and Coach (Ryan) Murphy,” Jones said. “Their values are very similar to the way I was raised, and I really feel as though I fit in there. I am really excited about joining the Longhorn family.”
In 2012, Jones had two top-five finishes and one top-10 finish in three starts on the AJGA. Jones has earned runner-up and top-5 finishes in the 2011 and 2012 Texas/Oklahoma Junior, respectively.
