TigerNet: (5.00)

Height: 6-5   Weight: 275   Hometown: Loganville, GA (Grayson HS)   Class: 2013

From AJC:

Nkemdiche and Jones are friends. So now the popular question for Internet message boards – Did UGA hire Nkemdiche’s former coach to get an advantage?

Grayson coach Mickey Conn chuckled when he was asked about it. “I don’t think Georgia hiring Daryl Jones has anything to do with Robert.”

“Robert’s decision is going to be what Robert wants to do.”

More background on Jones: He is well-connected and well-respected within the Georgia high school ranks after serving as a coach or athletics director in the state for 17 years. He will be making a $110,000 salary at UGA, according to FOI requests.

“Georgia is getting a great guy … a great coach and a great PR guy,” Conn said. “He’s real positive and a high-energy guy. He’s very organized. I think he’s going to do a fantastic job.”
