Michael Spath, Rivals, recently interviewed 2009 Recruit HB Teric Jones.
On Mike Barwis - "Every day, I feel bigger, stronger, faster. Thomas (Gordon S, fellow recruit) and I have been working out according to the Mike Barwis' plan and we can both see the changes in ourselves and each other. It's a full-body workout. It's a challenge but it's preparing both of us for what's coming up this summer."
On fellow future Wolverine Will Campbell - "I see him all the time – the three of us hang out a lot – and he tells us all about the coaches and our teammates and what you have to know about everybody," Jones said. "He just tells us that the coaches are very honest and straightforward and they're going to tell you what you have to do to play and it's up to you whether you want to do those things or not. But they don't let you just 'get by' – they're going to make you work hard."
On learning the playbook - "The coaches keep telling me they want to use me at both but they can only do so if I understand both," he said. "Every day after working out I go home and look at those books and try to learn as much as I can. I'm going to be prepared."
