One of the West Coast’s top small forward prospects in 2018 is Tevian Jones, ranked 92nd in the class by Scout.
The 6-foot-6, 190-pound wing from Chandler (Ariz.) showed his high upside this weekend at the Nike EYBL, as he has plus size, length and athleticism, can shoot from three, while his physical tools help him attack the basket and rebound.
“I’ve been in the gym a lot trying to work on my defense and shot,” Jones said. “I feel like I’ve really progressed and it’s shown on the court a lot. I’m just trying to get bigger and always get better.”
At this point the four-star prospect has three schools recruiting him the hardest.
Cal: “I like how they play, I like their school, I like what they say about their program and I like their coaches.”
UCSB: “I haven’t really gotten the chance to watch how they play but based on what they told me they’re going to play up-tempo and that sounds good.”
Gonzaga: “I like how they play a lot. They’re up-tempo and it’s not too much of a system, they run.”
Jones isn’t in any hurry to make a decision.
“I’m trying to take the recruiting process slow and not rush into anything,” he said.
