Irish Eyes Video: Tai-Ler Jones

As of late, college coaches have been dropping by Gainesville (Ga.) High on a regular basis to see four-star, class-of-2010, receiver Tai-ler Jones.

Notre Dame assistant coach Jon Tenuta was one of the many coaches to make an appearance. He left with a copy of Tai-ler Jones' film, and told him he'd be going back to Irish head coach Charlie Weis to push for an offer.

The 6-foot, 174-pound Jones has already racked up 11 scholarship offers from places like Ohio State, Arkansas, South Carolina, Mississippi, Stanford, Kentucky, Georgia Tech and Miami. The Hurricanes offer is as a defensive back.

Jones would like to add at least one more offer, and is looking for one from the Irish. Jones' father Andre played on Notre Dame's National Championship team in 1988, and the two visited South Bend this past fall for the Michigan game.

A few days after Tenuta dropped by to see Jones, Notre Dame made a request for a copy of his transcripts. That's always a good sign when hoping for an Irish offer.

Irish Eyes got a copy of the film Tenuta and the Irish staff have watched. Here are clips of Jones playing receiver and defensive back. This past season, Jones had 81 receptions for 1,000 yards and 13 touchdowns.
