Kentrevious Jones commits to Xavier

Chris Mack, Xavier picked up the fourth pledge of their 2017 recruiting class on Sunday by adding Georgia native Kentrevious Jones.

Xavier added the fourth commitment of their 2017 class on Sunday.

Kentrevious Jones, a 6-foot-11, 285-pound center, out of Macon (Ga.) Westside, verbally pledged to Chris Mack and his program during his weekend official visit.

"When I first came it felt like home," he said. "They came at me the hardest. I had a lot of other school come at me, but they came at me the hardest and made my family feel like family. We are trying to have a top five recruiting class and trying to win a national championship."

Jones selected the Musketeers over UCF, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Auburn and LSU. When did Jones know Xavier was the place for him?

"When they were showing me the stuff they do with the bigs," he said. "They know how to work with bigs and develop a good big man. Any school that can develop a good man is good for me. When I got on the visit, they just made me feel like family."

Jones played for Atlanta Xpress on the Under Armour Association circuit this spring and summer. Through 12 games, Jones averaged 6.3 points and 4.9 rebounds.

"I can help them a lot on the inside," Jones said. "They are losing two bigs. I’ll be there next year with Sean [O'Mara] and can help them out and get a lot done on the boards."

To go with Jones, Xavier's class also consists of four-star wing Naji Marshall and three-star recruits Elias Harden and Jarred Ridder.
