Antwann Jones, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound wing out of Orlando (Fla.) Oak Ridge, will enter the spring as one of 2018’s top shooting guard prospects.
Ranked 46th in Scout’s Top 100, Jones says his athleticism has improved since last summer.
“I can catch and shoot, jump, I can dribble the ball, guard and I got way more explosive,” Jones said. “When I go baseline I can dunk on centers.
“I just want to get better at every part of the game. I really want to keep working on my athleticism because I’ve seen the result of that.”
As of now, Jones says that he has no leader and that he’s open to everyone, but does have some schools reaching out to him the most.
The four-star prospect broke down what he likes about each of those programs.
Kansas: “Bill Self is great coach and that’s a top program in the nation who you have to be interested in. I think I can get to the NBA from there.”
Georgia: “They’re real close to home. My mom lives in Georgia so if I do leave home my mom wants me there.”
Oklahoma State: “I just have a really good relationship with that staff. That’s definitely one of my choices.”
LSU: “One of the people I look up to is Antonio Blakeney. I go to his school and I could follow in his footsteps. If he stays I could end up going there.”
Family will play an important role in Jones’ recruitment.
“I want a school who will keep my parents first,” he said. “Once you’re good with them then everything is A-Okay because they dictate everything I do in life.”
