The Texas Longhorns extended a second 2017 wide receiver offer on Wednesday to Stafford's Hezekiah Jones:

The 6'0, 185-pounder is a consensus four-star prospect rated as the No. 89 prospect, No. 13 wide receiver, and No. 11 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite. He's currently the top-ranked wide receiver in the state for that cycle. Twelve other schools have offered Jones already, including Baylor, Florida, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and UCLA.

The Aggies are considered the early leader, holding all six predictions in Jones' 247Sports Crystal Ball, but the Longhorns could become a contender for his services since he considered them a childhood favorite.

After posting the nation's fastest 200m time for a freshman last year at the Texas state track meet and finishing third behind two seniors, Jones will appear once again as a finalist in the 200m and on the Stafford 4x200m relay. Since he'll be in town for the event, it's possible that he could stop by the football offices for a visit.

In March, Jones ran a 4.53 40-yard dash at the Nike Opening Regional Dallas, along with a 4.53 shuttle and 30.2-inch vertical leap. As a sophomore, he caught 28 passes for 551 yards and six touchdowns, along with a kick-return touchdown.
