Jones will suit up as a running back at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, and Mason will be a defensive end at Campbellsville University. Both were joined by family, coaches and faculty in the high school library for the announcements.
Jones finished the 2013 season with more than 2,000 all-purpose yards and led the Wildcats in tackles each of the last three seasons as a linebacker.
“Jayven’s been talking Kentucky Christian for a very long time, but you’re never sure just how things will turn out,” Trigg head coach Coby Lewis said, noting that Jones had indicated Kentucky Christian as his choice when he was named 2014 Basketball Homecoming King last month. “Lindsey Wilson put an offer out there that was going to be hard to turn down. Jayven was recruited by several schools. We’ve had guys in the past that signed with a school because it was their only option for football, but Jayven had a decision to make.”
Jones said he felt more stability from Lindsey Wilson’s coaching staff.
