The Shawnee Mission, KS native was lightly recruited until the last few months. His school won the Kansas state championship last year, but he was overshadowed by Villanova commit Jeremiah Robinson-Earl. His star teammate transferred away last summer, leaving Jones the chance to shoulder a greater load. According to his MaxPreps profile, he averaged 17 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game, all significantly up from the year prior.
From his footage on YouTube and Hudl, the 6’7” Jones appears to have a Pac-12 ready frame. He is a capable outside shooter, even if his form is a bit distinct. He has solid athleticism, and can handle the ball as a secondary creator. Overall he seems to be another versatile Haase recruit who likes to get after it on defense.
Stanford offered him this spring, and made haste of getting him on campus. He joins Tyrell Terry and James Keefe in Stanford’s 2019 recruiting class.
