2024 Four Star LB Kristopher Jones impressed by Notre Dame


Mountain View linebacker (Virginia) 2024 Kristopher Jones‍ and his family took a swing in the Midwest last week and Notre Dame was a highly anticipated stop.

The four-star prospect toured the campus and spent a lot of time with the Notre Dame coaching staff during the trip.

“It was amazing,” Jones told ISD. “The campus was beautiful and I was able to meet the coaching staff, which was nice.

“I was able to meet Coach (Al) Golden and Coach (Marcus) Freeman. They were saying that Notre Dame would be a good fit for me and that academically Notre Dame would be a better graduate than n anywhere else I would go, so it would help me off the pitch.

Jones had heard a lot of positive things about Freeman before the visit, and his interactions with the Notre Dame head coach only confirmed his thoughts.

“Coach Freeman is just an amazing guy,” Jones said. “He’s just an amazing guy, but he’s also a great coach.”

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound player was also impressed with Notre Dame’s new defensive coordinator, as they were able to talk the ball and Jones was a sponge.

“We watched a bit of film,” Jones said. “He also taught me how to tackle correctly in the open. It’s amazing to have a spirit like that to help me with my game. I’m just taking it all in right now.

Jones also made a stopover in Columbus on the trip and left with an offer from the Buckeyes.

“The day before Notre Dame, I was at Ohio State,” Jones said. “It’s amazing and I love the coaching staff there too.”

The Virginia native doesn’t have a public front group or set announcement date, but the past few months have given Jones the chance to see what he wants in a future school.

“I look at the coaching staff and the academics,” Jones said. “I also watch how they take care of their players too.”
