Why Christion Jones Also Wants To Learn Quarterback

Tuscaloosa, Ala. (WHNT) - Alabama wide receiver Christion Jones already learned how to be a punt returner.  This Spring, coaches have also taught him how to be a cornerback.  At A-Day, he had a couple of tackles defensively and 55 receiving yards offensively.  Still, Nick Saban says he likely wants to keep him at wide receiver.

"I don't want him to think he needs to prepare to play on both sides of the ball but it will be nice to know he knows how to play corner and he learned how to play corner this Spring, so if we need him to play it, he can play it," said Nick Saban, Alabama head coach.

Jones already knows how to play three positions but if he had to learn a fourth, he says he would want to be a quarterback.
