RECEIVER – Dwight Jones, North Carolina, WR, Sr., 6-4, 225, Burlington, N.C. Senior wide receiver Dwight Jones finished with six catches for 135 yards and a 66-yard touchdown. It was his second 100-yard game in as many weeks and the sixth of his career.
As noted above, Jones went over the 100-yard mark for the second time in as many games this season scoring a TD in each. Jones has 251 yards receiving so far for a 7.5 yard per catch average good for second among ACC receivers.
Coming into the season, Jones was tabbed as an All-ACC pick but the question remained whether he would live up to that or not. So far Jones has done that and done it quietly. Unlike Greg Little, Jones takes care of his business without drawing a lot of attention to himself. If he continues to put up good numbers it will bode well for Bryn Renner and the offense in general having a dependable weapon in the passing game.
