HAMPTON — Dutchtown quarterback Donovahn Jones wants to play quarterback in college, a desire so strong that he flipped his verbal commitment from Missouri to Minnesota on Tuesday.

"The biggest thing is he's going to get a chance to play quarterback," Dutchtown defensive coordinator and associate head coach Terry Herrod said.

Jones committed to Missouri on Sept. 11 following a trip to Columbia, Mo., to see the Tigers play Georgia in their first ever SEC game.

But Herrod said Minnesota never wavered in its pursuit of Jones and its vision to have play quarterback and be the future face of the program.
