Darren Jones could be filling void for Cajon football

Cajon football could be getting a big-time transfer that would help the Cowboys for the next three years.
Darren Jones had 19 catches for 437 yards and five touchdowns as a 6-foot-7 freshman last year. He lead the Highlanders, who went to the second round of the playoffs, in all three categories.
Cajon coach Nick Rogers confirmed that Jones is at Cajon, but said that his transfer status is still pending. The CIF Southern Section web site lists Jones’ transfer status as “under review.”
I have no idea whether or not Jones’ transfer will go through, and if so, if he’ll have to serve the sit-out period.
But I’m interested if the transfer goes through, how things will work out between Jones and Cajon’s standout sophomore quarterback, Jayden Daniels.
A year ago, Daniels, The Sun’s Newcomer of the Year, completed 169 of 301 passes for 2,694 yards and 35 touchdowns with only 10 interceptions. That was to a largely experienced receiver crew. And when one of his top returning targets, Phillip Ryan, transferred out to Pacific, the question was, “who will Daniels throw to?”
It could be Jones, which could make for a very intriguing QB-WR combo for the next three years.
Cajon isn’t putting all of its eggs in Darren Jones’ basket. Tre’veon Wellmaker, who was second at Jurupa Hills last year in receptions (45), yards (328) and receiving touchdowns (three), has transferred in. Wellmaker, who is a senior this year, has been approved by CIF-SS to play immediately.
