This week, USF got it done.
"I was feeling USF from the beginning from my 11th grade year," Jones said. "I was entertaining everyone because I didn't know much and I wanted to see if there was better. This isn't a North Carolina or Duke program. If you go (to those places) you just fit in. I can go in (to USF) and do my thing. My goal is to turn it around so they say ‘it all started when Dominique Jones came there.' "
Jones was hearing from Providence, Fresno State, Pittsburgh and Iowa State. South Florida moved swiftly and decisively to lock him up. Next fall, the Bulls get a guy oozing with confidence – not cockiness – who badly wants to win basketball games.
"Every team I've been on I run it. It's just different things. I can score and get others in the game. Whatever it is for that night then that's what it'll be. One night I might have to score and that'll be it. If my teammates need to score it, I'll drive and kick it. I want to get in there and help turn that program around."
