November, 2009: The ESPNU #3 overall player in the class of 2010 has off the charts talent and skill but his production is no where close to what it should be
. Against Bellaire (Texas Jamboree) he had two points at halftime and finished the game with 9 points and 4 fouls. Jones started the second half with three consectitive mid range jumpers before picking up his 4th foul early in the 3rd quarter that caused him to sit until about the six minute mark of the 4th quarter.
Jones is a terrific athlete that can score anywhere on the floor. His upside and potential has NBA written all over it but before that can happen he must learn to dominate high school games on a consistent basis
and prepare for life as a Big 12 player. Jones is a very unselfish player almost to a fault. He needs to play in attack mode more often
in order to get the production he is capable of and the result will be more wins for his team.
Jones is an above the rim rebounder and a coast to coast threat in transition. He can post, hit jumpers to the arc and pick and pop and make plays of the dribble with ease. Jones is a good area rebounder and average shot blocker. He has the athletic ability and lateral foot speed to defend position 2-5 in a defensive switch situation. He runs the floor with great speed and just wows you with some of the plays he makes except these great plays are few and far between.
Jones seems to be a great teammate and team player but he needs to demand the ball and dominate the game the way we have seen him do at times.
