Four-star cornerback is down to five schools

Could Kentucky strike again in South Florida?

Mark Stoops would love to land four-star Miami Central (Fla.) cornerback Chandler Jones, and he's down to five finalists.



Jones announced via Twitter on Sunday that his five favorites are Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Utah, Louisville and Kentucky. Jones said that his list could change.

The 5-foot-10, 168-pound defensive back is ranked the No. 29 cornerback prospect in the nation according to Rivals.com, and the No. 69 player in Florida. That alone is a testament to the amount of talent in Florida, but the bigger point is that Jones is a big priority for Kentucky.

Jones is planning to visit Kentucky on July 13-14.

Earlier this year Jones told CatsIllustrated.com that he knows current Wildcat receivers Josh Ali and Clevan Thomas, two other South Florida products.
