ABBEVILLE — Abbeville High School football coach Jamie Nickles had one word to describe why college football teams would be interested in Martavious Jones.
Upside.
And with Jones standing 6-feet-7-inches, it is not hard to see why.
"His upside is huge," Nickles said. "I think Martavious will be a late bloomer. It just takes a while to grow into a 6-7 frame."


Jones signed his national letter of intent to play football at Limestone College on Wednesday, giving the Saints the opportunity to maximize that potential.
"It's just a relief to know where I'm going to be the next four years and where I'm going to continue my football career," Jones said after inking his name on his letter.
