Tennessee signee Jordan Bone has game changing speed

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Scout had the opportunity to evaluate Tennessee signee in the state playoffs this past weekend.

Tennessee signee Jordan Bone led Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth to the Tennessee State AA title game over the weekend.

Although Bone and Ensworth fell to Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy in the championship, Bone impressed Scout in a viewing on Friday during a semi-finals match up with Memphis (Tenn.) Christian Brothers.

Bone, a 6-foot-2, 170-pound lead guard, showed off game changing speed, quality athleticism and toughness. Christian Brothers struggled to contain Bone’s quickness, as he consistently found ways to get into the paint.

Bone’s ability to get by the first line of defense led to him taking a number of shots from the mid-range area. Bone appeared comfortable pulling up off the dribble and connected on a pair of pull-ups.

Bone, who ended up with 24 points, finished well at the basket with his right hand at the rim, drove and kicked to open teammates and hit a pair of off the catch three-pointers. Bone also showed good lateral quickness and is tracking as a good on the ball defender at the next level.

For Bone to reach his full potential the areas for him to improve include gaining strength, consistency in his long-range shot, as well as cutting down on turnovers. With that said, Bone, a three-star prospect, has upside and will likely get quality minutes at Tennessee early in his career.
