Princeton commit and Wyomissing All-State LB Ryker Jones

Wyomissing all-state linebacker Ryker Jones called his decision to attend Princeton a "no-brainer."  The 6', 200-pound rising senior understands the value of an Ivy League education.  "That's one of the huge reasons I picked Princeton. The opportunities for after graduation are amazing and they can really set me up for the rest of my life," he said.  Jones led the Spartans in tackles last season with 84.  He's a football-seeking missile on the gridiron who loves the physical aspect of the sport.  "That's why I play football, to hit people. I love it," Jones told SV Sports' Paul Roberts.  Wyomissing went (13-1) in 2022 while allowing just 9.2 points per game.  The Spartans fell to Neumann-Goretti 20-17 in the Class 3A state semifinals.  Bob Wolfrum reached 350 wins a season ago, his 36th year at the helm.  Wolfrum has more victories than any coach in District 3 history.  "It's something that you definitely can't take for granted. We love Coach Wolfrum. Everybody respects him so much," emphasized Jones.  Wyomissing is (49-4) over the past four seasons with four straight District 3 championships.  Jones averaged 8.9 yards on 32 carries last year.  He'll be part of a talented and deep backfield this fall that includes Chase Eisenhower, Collin Niedrowski, Drew Forrey, Derek Macrina, Daniel Noey, and highly touted freshman Justice Hardy.  Penn State commit Caleb Brewer (6'5, 300) will be leading the way in the Spartans' vaunted Wing-T attack.  Jones also plays baseball at Wyomissing.  While he's a Phillies' fan, Elly De La Cruz of the Reds is his favorite player.  Jones cheers for T.J. Watt and the Steelers during football season.  He simply stated, "He loves to hit quarterbacks. I love to hit quarterbacks."
