A third member of Michigan's 2010 football recruiting class will not make it to Ann Arbor because of academic issues. After already losing Demar Dorsey because the admissions department turned him down and Antonio Kinard because he didn't qualify, quarterback Conelius Jones can now be added to the list for reasons similar to Kinard.â†µ
"Conelius got his test score back, and he came up 20 points short on the SAT ...he needed an 810 but didn't make it."â†µ
"Academically (GPA-wise) he wound up fine ... his core is 2.53-2.55."
"He will go to Fork Union Military Academy in the fall and try to enroll at U-M in December."
Adrian Witty tried to do something similar a year ago but was never admitted to Michigan, so it's not a guarantee that Jones will ever make it to U-M.â†µ
Losing Jones isn't a huge blow since he was so raw as a quarterback, but down the road it will sting a bit to lose his athleticism. Even so, the quarterback situation has enough depth with Tate Forcier, Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner that losing Jones shouldn't be a huge concern unless injuries start to really pile up.
