recruit757 Fab 30: Adarious Jones – Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School #6
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
Bishop Sullivan’s top senior athlete is a lineman who missed most of the 2017 season. His motivation to come back and blow the doors off of his senior season earned him the confidence of college coaches who continued to recruit him this spring. By mid-summer, he made his college commitment to Texas A&M.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #6 senior prospect region-wide is Bishop Sullivan Catholic lineman Adarious Jones.

Adarious Jones had little opportunity to showcase himself in what would be Bishop Sullivan Catholic’s most challenging schedule yet. The Crusaders booked one of the top ten schedules in the nation, but suffered injuries along the way and struggled against some of the biggest football programs they decided to take on.
Jones landed offers from schools like Georgia Tech, Florida Atlantic, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Rutgers, Wake Forest, Syracuse, Temple, Maryland, UCF, East Carolina, Boston College and Duke.
Texas A&M came in to see him at Bishop Sullivan’s College Day Workout this May. He landed an offer, made a visit, and decided to commit to the Aggies.
It’s the first commitment from the 757 to Texas A&M in recent memory.
New Aggie Head Coach Jimbo Fisher mined the 757 for talent in his previous gig at Florida State, and the Seminoles have prospered with that talent, including Josh Sweat, Derrick Nnadi, Lavonta Taylor and Khalan Laborn.
Bishop Sullivan opens their season on Saturday, September 25 when they visit Norfolk Christian.
