Jordan Jones signs with MVSU

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Sandia High senior Jordan Jones signed a letter of intent to compete for Mississippi Valley State University Friday where he will play basketball and football.

Jones averaged 15 points, seven rebounds and four blocks for the Matadors in basketball this season. At 6 foot 6, Jones was a big target for the Matadors football team who was able to convert big plays when needed.

He is well aware that NFL great Jerry Rice once called MVSU home.

When asked about playing receiver at the same school that produced Rice Jones said, “It’s some big shoes to fill if they are expecting me to be like the next Jerry Rice. I don’t think anybody can be the next Jerry Rice. Like I said, it’s some big shoes to fill but, just playing basketball in college is a big accomplishment for me”. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
