After spending nearly a decade in the American Athletic Conference, the Bearcats were officially welcomed into the Big 12 Conference this week.

During a recent interview with Philadelphia-based sports writer Joseph Santoliquito, Jones discussed his decision to commit to Cincinnati!

"“Cincinnati made me feel really comfortable. That was something that really stuck out to me. Plus Satterfield runs an explosive offense that’s made for a dual-threat quarterback like me. Cincinnati is entering the Big 12 this year so now they’re a Power Five school. Coach Satterfield has coached a lot of good quarterbacks and seeing the work he did with Malik Cunningham was a big deal to me. The program has been great under Fickell and Satterfield has been recruiting me since he was at Louisville. I want to compete for the starting job from day one and I know it’s going to take a lot for me to get what I want. I’m a competitor. It’s part of who I am.”"
