Cam’ron Jones has decided on where he will be continuing his football career.

The 4-star safety from Mansfield, Texas announced Sunday night that he is set on becoming an UCLA Bruin.

“Of course, I’m going to be playing safety, but I’m also going to play some corner” Jones told 247Sports. “Coach Demetrice (Martin) likes how I fit in the Pac-12 because I’m tall, fast and lanky and can come down and hit. There is an opportunity for early playing time, so that was big.”

Jones also mentioned how UCLA becoming DBU in the Pac-12 was another reason he committed to the Bruins.

With the commitment from Jones, UCLA’s 2018 recruiting class now ranks No. 24 in the nation. Jones is the fifth commit in the Bruins’ 2018 class. He chose UCLA despite holding offers from Baylor, Colorado, Mississippi State and Oklahoma.

Jones has the ideal frame to play safety at the next-level, as he stands 6-foot and weighs 185 pounds. He will probably serve the Bruins the best when he is in the box, where he can attack the run and utilize his top-end closing speed.
