Spring Update with Ricky Jones
March 30, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Wide receiver Ricky Jones is back on the field this spring after suffering a season-ending ankle injury following Indiana's 2012 opening victory against Indiana State. The redshirt freshman caught one pass for two yards and returned one kick for 12 yards versus the Sycamores.
Jones played wide receiver and cornerback at Booker High School in Sarasota, Fla. He earned Class 4A All-State first team honors as a senior and was a three-time all-area and all-district selection.
During his final campaign, Jones collected 58 receptions for 897 yards (15.5 average) and 11 touchdowns. The 5-10, 190-pounder recorded six interceptions, returned three for scores and scored on a punt return and a blocked field goal.
Jones spoke with IUHoosiers.com's Jeremy Gray after practice:
Did the redshirt season help you as a player?
How did the coaches make you feel comfortable?
Talk about head strength and conditioning coach Mark Hill and his staff:
What do you plan on studying?
