This answer by Jones opened up the question of which teams are on that list that he mentioned.
“Top 6 Notre Dame, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Iowa, Northwestern, and Illinois,” Jones said, “I have unofficial overnights to Notre Dame, Michigan State, and Northwestern set up right now.”
These unofficial visits are important because they are the only way a player can get the full experience of how the program will be when he is attending.
Jones has the visit to Notre Dame set up for January 20-22 and then he will head to Northwestern on January 27-29. The Michigan State plans are still in the works because he wants to visit during their spring practice.
As for Illinois, Jones still has the Illini as a strong candidate and they will be in the hunt. He visited Champaign on an unofficial back in October 2016 as well.
I think when it comes down to the five official visits that each recruit gets, Jones will likely use one for the Illini.
