One of the top defensive linemen to hail from New York in recent memory is a Class of 2012 prospect that has already received three verbal offers.

At 6-foot-6 and 305-pounds Jarron Jones could actually play on either side of the ball once he gets to college.

"I have verbal offers from Boston College, Connecticut and Rutgers," Jones told Rivals.com on Sunday afternoon.
