Rylan Jones

Three schools pushing hardest for Top 60 2019 PG Rylan Jones

At last weekend's adidas Gauntlet in Emerson (Ga.), Exum Elite's Rylan Jones showed that he remained one of the top point guards on the west in 2019. Who is involved in Jones' recruitment?

One of the west’s top point guards in 2019 is Salt Lake City (Utah) Olympus’ Rylan Jones.

The 6-foot, 150-pound floor general is Scout’s 57th ranked prospect in the class.

After his father, Chris Jones, made the transition from Utah State assistant to Utah Director of Basketball Operations, Rylan moved from Logan to Olympus for his sophomore season.

“It was a really good season,” Rylan said. “We lost in the state championship in double overtime but it was a really good season for me.

“I had to adjust because I moved to a new school and became more of a playmaker this year. I changed the way I played to adapt to a different style.”


There are three main schools involved in Jones’ recruitment at this point, with Utah, Utah State and BYU all heavily recruiting him.

The four-star prospect broke down what he likes about each program.

Utah: “Obviously my dad is there and I really like coach (Larry) Krystkowiak and the way they play. I like all the coaches there and know they know what they’re talking about.”

Utah State: “I really like the city of Logan. Coach (Tim) Duryea does a great job and I really like their assistants too.”

BYU: “I love the way they play with their up and down style. They always have good guards and (Dave) Rose lets them play. I also love their environment.”

Jones says he’s only focused on his game right now and isn’t worried about his recruitment.

“I just want to play,” he said.
