UA Finals: Sacha Killeya-Jones

SUWANEE, Ga. -- Gifted power forward Sacha Killeya-Jones had a solid showing in a loss at the Under Armour Finals on Thursday.

Since backing off his pledge to Virginia, Sacha Killeya-Jones, of Lynchburg (Va.) Virginia Episcopal School, has had a wide range of college interest.

And the attention has been well earned.

A 6-foot-10 forward, Killeya-Jones is in the midst of an impressive summer. Although his team -- Team Felton – got beat pretty good by Team Charlotte on Thursday afternoon, he still managed to impress on the offensive end of the floor.

Killeya-Jones is mobile and ran the floor with purpose. He scored a handful of times in transition and flashed a terrific set of mitts that can catch passes in traffic. Killeya-Jones was aggressive inside and had a handful of dunks, including a face-up baseline drive and dunk plus the foul. He didn’t show his full offensive arsenal, as he didn't get many touches on the block, but his skill level and potential on that end of the floor was evident.

Between the first and second July evaluation periods, Killeya-Jones picked up scholarship offers from California, Kansas and Maryland. To date, the four-star prospect has visited Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina and Virginia.
