Midwest City's Dominque Jones makes best of tough situation, signs with Baylor

Jones was one of two state players who signed with Baylor. Lawton MacArthur's Tuswani Copeland was the other.

"Baylor's an upcoming place," Jones said. "The coaches have a plan and seem to be building for success."

Jones was an Oklahoman All-Stater this season, picking up 118 tackles, eight sacks and returning an interception 61 yards for a touchdown.

At 6-foot-2, 278 pounds, Jones feels like he can quickly find playing time along the Bears' frontline.

"That's what I'm working toward," Jones said. "I've got a plan to get my academics taken care of and I'm on track to be eligible if I keep doing what I'm supposed to do."
