Jones returns to the hotel, eats brunch ("Seven hours later I was still full from that meal," he says) and meets with Mark Jensen, director of football student-athlete development. "We went over my grades and talked about what I needed to do to make sure I could get admitted to Cal," Jones says. "Mark played at Cal, so he could answer questions I had about being a student and a football player there."
