Penn State has offered a scholarship to De’zie Jones, a 2025 recruit out of DePaul Catholic High School in Wayne, NJ. He has received offers so far from Rutgers, Syracuse, and Maryland,
Jones is a 5-foot-11, 175-pound two-way player who plays wide receiver and defensive back. He caught 20 passes for 319 yards as he helped the Spartans to a 9-3 record and a berth in the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association finals.
Jones is an intriguing prospect that has shown blazing speed, good route running ability, and can find the soft spots in the defense on his game tape.
As he heads into his sophomore season in 2022, he has a chance to develop into becoming an elite prospect as a wide receiver or a defensive back over the next couple of seasons especially playing alongside some of the best recruits in New Jersey.
Depaul Catholic features rising prospects in Nyair Domnie, Jake Kucera, and Nick Wilderson as they hope to take home the NJSIAA State championship.
