Julio Jones to finish work on his college degree

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is in the process of returning to college to finish his degree at the University of Alabama.

Jones, who entered the draft after his junior year, said he has about 32 hours to complete his degree and was working to get set up for online correspondence classes.

“I’ve got to get that paper,” Jones told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Jones spent part of his offseason working out in Tuscaloosa and head coach Nick Saban talked to him about finishing his degree. He was studying criminal justice and environmental science.

“I may have to change my major, but I want to finish it,” Jones said.
