Alabama four-star 2017 QB Mac Jones tweeted a highlight video Thursday that spliced his clips with those of former Crimson Tide QB AJ McCarron.

Apparently, Jones has no problem with high expectations. Only time will tell if it was supreme confidence or utter hubris that caused Jones to imply -- before his senior year of high school, no less -- that he's the second coming of a signal-caller who led Alabama to back-to-back national championships in 2011 and 2012. Jones is the No. 14 pro-style prospect of the 2017 class, per the 247Sports composite.

Alabama four-star 2017 QB Mac Jones has been lobbying other recruits to commit to the Crimson Tide.

Little did HC Nick Saban know when Jones flipped his commitment from Kentucky to Alabama last week, but he has quite the little recruiter on his hands. "I was with a lot of those guys this weekend at the [Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge]," Jones said. "Wide receiver-wise, Jerry Jeudy, Devonta Smith and Henry Ruggs were the big ones. I threw with them like every time I went up there. We really clicked every time on and off the field." All three of those wideouts are four-star prospects. He added, "I want to make sure that Najee and all those guys stay committed, too." "Najee," in this case, being five-star RB Najee Harris. Harris is committed to Alabama, but has kept his recruitment open.

Following Alabama four-star 2017 QB Mac Jones' decision to flip on his former Kentucky commitment, Kentucky QB coach Darin Hinshaw reacted with a passive-aggressive Twitter post.

Hinshaw posted a quote from former LDS president James E. Faust which reads, in part, "In this life we have to make many choices... Many of our choices are between good and evil." It ends with the comment "we have to live with the consequences of our choices." Jones responded almost immediately by tweeting "Nothing but respect to the program yet an old man is acting like a 12 year old." Jones deleted the tweet (so much as anything can be deleted on the internet), but he has a Brienne of Tarth-esque defender in the form of Alabama OC Lane Kiffin, who retweeted Hinshaw, the internet equivalent of telling him to look in the mirror.

ESPN's Tom Luginbill wrote that Alabama four-star 2017 QB Mac Jones would likely play as a redshirt sophomore at the earliest.

Luginbill referred to Alabama netting Jones' commitment as a potential "developmental move." The analyst believes that the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder needs to hit the weight room hard initially (he refers to him as "tall and lanky") and will need time to adjust to the Crimson Tide playbook given that he operates in a Wing-T offense at The Bolles School. The Wing-T offers relatively limited passing opportunities. Prior to committing to Alabama in the middle of the week, Jones had been pledged to the Kentucky cause.

Kentucky four-star 2017 QB Mac Jones flipped his commitment to Alabama.

Sorry, Wildcat faithful. Looks like this ship has passed in the night. Not only did Jones commit to Alabama, he went so far as to essentially shut down his recruitment completely. To that end, the 6-foot-2, 185-pound gunslinger will no longer be taking visits to schools. Jones actually made the commitment in Nick Saban's office during a visit to Tuscaloosa -- his second visit to the Tide -- on Tuesday. He explained that "I just took my time and they took their time with me. I just felt like it's the best place for for me and the best fit for me." The defending champs have now earned two four-star quarterback commitments for 2017, as Tua Tagovailoa has also pledged his name to Bama's cause.

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy noted that Kentucky four-star 2017 QB Mac Jones "throws a pretty ball and impresses with his footwork and mechanics."

"Jones is well-rounded as a passer as there are no glaring problems with his delivery or his accuracy," Cassidy wrote. "What's most encouraging, however, is the fact that he seems to get better with each passing month." The Jacksonville native was named the MVP in two separate Rivals Camp Series events this offseason and ranks as the outlet's No. 15 pro-style quarterback for 2017. Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell praised his consistency back in February.

Four-star Kentucky commitment for 2017, QB Mac Jones, was named the position MVP at Rivals Camp.

Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell called it "one of the closest position battles," but Jones ultimately won the camp MVP due to the fact that he was "consistent all day." The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder hails from Jacksonville and ranks as Rivals' No. 15 prospect at quarterback for the 2017 class. While Scout.com doesn't rank him on their overall matrix at this time, they've previously spoken highly of Jones' arm and size.
