TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama receiver Julio Jones has
undergone surgery to repair a sports hernia.

A spokesman for the football team confirmed Monday that Jones
had the surgery. He is expected to be back for fall camp.

Jones was easily the Crimson Tide's leading receiver as a
freshman with 58 catches for 924 yards. He was a second-team
Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference pick.

Jones was instantly one of the Tide's most popular players. He
won a seat on the Student Government Association's senate through
write-in votes.
