Jones to SDSU
San Diego State picked up a commitment from one of the Aztecs' top targets on Thursday, as 6-foot-9, 210-pound Lawndale (Calif.) power forward Brodricks Jones chose SDSU. The 2015 prospect had a breakout July for Cal Supreme. He's an athletic face up four that can hit midrange jumpers but his improved footwork has allowed him to finish better around the basket. He's also a capable defender and rebounder, two areas he's made strides in. According to Jones' mentor, Teddy Johnson, choosing San Diego State was an easy decision. "It's close to home, style of play and the history that the coaches have in dealing and getting the most out of their players," Johnson said. Head coach Steve Fisher and lead recruiter Justin Hutson were big reasons for Jones going with San Diego State. "Coach Fisher and staff were honest with Brodricks and told him what he had to work on, what his strengths are, how he fits into the program and how he'll improve with their player development," said Johnson. Jones' versatility and athleticism make him a good fit into San Diego State's up and down system. "One of the unique aspects of San Diego State is that they don't put numbers on players, they just allow them to be basketball players," said Johnson. "One of the things that caught Brodricks' eyes was that they didn't put a number on him, they just want him to get on the court so they can hone his skills." Brodricks Jones joins Top 100 guard Jeremy Hemsley in San Diego State's 2015 recruiting class.
