05/12/2014 - Receiver TJ Jones from Notre Dame, sixth-round pick, said he decided to study television and theatre in college after working a summer job with Shamu, the whale, at SeaWorld. "It's a weird love I've had since I was a kid," he said with a chuckle. "My parents took us when I was in middle school, took us to SeaWorld. For the first time I saw the show I had a weird love for the ocean and aquatic animals. It's weird." - The Sports Xchange

05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 6/189 - T.J. Jones, WR, 6-0, 195, Notre Dame...He is expected to compete for the slot receiver spot right out of the gate. He ran the 40 in 4.46 at the combine and scouts rave about his strong hands and the way he attacks and plucks the football. He has NFL bloodlines, too. His father, Andre Jones, played for the Lions. His uncle, Phillip Daniels, played 15 seasons in the NFL and his godfather is Rocket Ismail. - The Sports Xchange

01/13/2014 - 2014 SHRINE GAME: TOP-10 PROSPECTS TO WATCH: 6. WR T.J. Jones, Notre Dame (6-0, 195, 4.54, #7)...With Tyler Eifert gone, Jones stepped up and led the Irish in receiving this past season, finishing his senior year with a career-best in catches (70), receiving yards (1,108) and touchdowns (9). He's a natural plucker with strong hands and projects as a down-the-road starter at the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/24/2013 - 2013 FBS ALL-INDEPENDENT FIRST TEAM (MEDIA): WR TJ Jones (Sr.) Notre Dame,...Jones anchors the Notre Dame wide receiver corps. He leads the Irish in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Jones is the seventh wide out in school history to surpass 1,000 yards receiving in a single season. His 65 catches, 1,042 yards and nine touchdown catches rank ninth, eighth and tied for ninth, respectively, in single-season school history.

Jones has recorded 100-yard receiving games on five different occasions in 2013 - tied for the fourth-most in school history. He also registered a touchdown grab in seven consecutive games, which is the second-longest streak in school history. Jones' career totals are equally impressive. He has caught 176 passes for 2,363 yards and 19 touchdowns. Jones ranks third in school history for all-time receptions, sixth in all-time receiving yards and tied for sixth in all-time touchdown catches. - Notre Dame football

10/06/2013 - Tommy Rees and Notre Dame felt right at home during another trip to South Bend South in Texas. Rees threw for 279 yards and three touchdowns, and Notre Dame made it 5 for 5 in the traveling Shamrock Series with a 37-34 victory against No. 22 Arizona State on Saturday night. Kyle Brindza kicked three second-half field goals, including the go-ahead kick from 25 yards with 3:03 remaining. He tied a Notre Dame record with a 53-yarder that matched the longest in a college game at the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.

It was the second win in Texas in the five-year Shamrock run of home games on the road for the Irish (4-2), starting with a victory over Washington State in San Antonio in 2009. "It's a big win for us, to get right back on the right track in the bye week and the halfway point of the season," said Rees, who had just nine completions in a loss to Oklahoma last week. "It was kind of a game we understood the importance of and we were really ready to go and had a great week of preparation."

Taylor Kelly threw for 362 yards and three scores for the Sun Devils (3-2), who missed on a chance to become the first team to beat Southern California and Notre Dame in consecutive weeks. Notre Dame's T.J. Jones had eight catches for 135 yards, including a pair of first-down catches on the drive to the winning field goal. Cam McDaniel, who went to school in nearby Coppell, had four straight carries for 32 yards to get Notre Dame in field goal range. McDaniel finished with a game-high 82 yards. - AP Sports
