Three Finalists for Bobby Jones

After drawing interest from a number of program across the country, Bobby Jones has narrowed his list to three schools. The WCC, Mountain West and Big East are all still involved...

Bobby Jones, 6-6 SF Long Beach (Calif.) Poly, told us last night that he's now considering three schools -- Pepperdine, New Mexico and Boston College.

Jones, who plans on signing in the spring, took a visit recently to Pepperdine. "I was real impressed," Jones said. "It was very nice and beautiful -- I had a good time. I was there for Midnight Madness and they had Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider playing with the girl's team. It was very funny."

Jones went on to say, "I had a real good conversation with Coach Westphal. I know he's got great connections and he's the main reaon I'm considering Pepperdine."

Jones had planned to visit New Mexico this weekend, but because of his decision to wait until spring, the Lobos have asked him to instead visit during the season when he can attend a New Mexico game.

Boston College was trying to get Jones to visit during early November, but Bobby said his mother has some concerns about him flying across the country right now and that trip will have to be rescheduled.

Jones said that he will choose from his three finalists. "Everyone else has pretty much dropped away," Jones said.
