Anderson, whose offense will be run by former Southeastern Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Scott Courter, said he's not concerned about how much the team will run or pass the ball, but insists on being "big and strong" up front.
Jones said that won't be a problem as far as he is concerned.
"I'm coming from the best offensive line in the state at Cabell Midland," Jones said. "We all pretty much came out of the woodwork and are big, physical, nasty guys. Last year, I got thrown out of a game, which I regret, but it shows we're nasty.
"We're mean, too."
Last year - Courter's sixth with Southeastern Oklahoma State - the Savage Storm averaged 223 yards rushing and 184 yards passing per game.
Jones didn't give a stock answer about whether he would prefer to run block or pass block, or play at guard or tackle, since he has played every position on the offensive line.
He "loves" to pull, so guard would be the ideal position.
However, what he's really looking forward to is being part of the beginning of a new era at State.
"It's very cool," he said. "Things are starting to look up. I might be part of the first class to come in there and look back when I'm 30 and say that I helped start the program again ... that I was in Coach Anderson's first recruiting class. It's very special."
