For the 6-foot-3 1/2, 180-pound junior guard, home is Monsignor Bonner (Pa.), where he's blossomed over the past two years and become one of the Catholic League's top players.
Jones not only contemplated a move to St. Augustine (N.J.); he actually made the switch.
``I went there for five days, but it was too much," Jones said. "It was almost an hour and a half each way and I just didn't think I could do it every day. Me and my dad talked about it and decided it was best if I went back to Bonner."
``It had nothing to do with (St. Augustine coach) Paul Rodio," he added. "I love the guy. He does so much for people on and off the court. He's a class act and a great coach. It really had nothing to do with basketball, either. It was just something about me and my family."
Jones is a guy who came into the summer without much of a national reputation, but left as one of the more sough-after backcourt guys in the nation after having an impressive summer with the New Jersey All-Stars.
Jones started classes on Monday at Bonner and he'll likely be the go-to guy once again on a team that has a new coach – former Bonner and St. Joseph's player Brian Daily.
One facet that coaches like about Jones is his versatility.
``We didn't have a lot of players at the Peach Jam," Jones said. "Darren Govens wasn't there, so I stepped into his spot playing the point and I adjusted to it pretty well. It was the first time I had played the point the whole game."
Jones said that he'll have to feel comfortable with the coaching staff and that's the most important factor when he chooses a school. However, he also wants to be part of the rotation as a freshman.
