At 6-foot-8 and 215 pounds with long arms, Jones certainly is capable of opening up eyes on a basketball floor. He runs the floor very well, and also has a decent touch around the rim. Now Jones is trying to simply put all of those skills together to become a very productive player.
"I am just keeping on working hard," Jones explained. "I know I have to live up to the expectations, so I work harder and harder every day."
On the recruiting front Jones has had attention from schools in the Pac-10 since he was in the eighth grade, and he continues to hear from many of the top schools.
When looking for a school down the road, Jones already has a few factors that will be important to him.
"First off the academics are going to be important to me," Jones explained. "Also I love to run up and down the floor, so a fast paced team is important. I also am looking for a school that feeds the post and wins a lot of games."
For now Jones is simply working to improve on his game as he goes forward. When asked what he needs to focus on, Jones said, "I am constantly working on my jump shot and my ball handling so I can play more facing the rim."
Right now his game is still coming together, but many are banking on the fact that it will before the time comes for him to head off to college.
