The 6-foot-4, 175-pound senior guard at Fort Wayne Northside (Ind.) committed to Indiana this afternoon, but he'll head to a prep school – likely Hargrave or Harmony – next season before arriving in Bloomington.
``I chose IU because I really like the coaching staff," Jones said. "I like the system they run and it's close to home."
``I like Kelvin Sampson and what he's doing," Jones added. "He showed a lot of interest in me and he's always had a reputation of winning.
``I'm so thankful I can be a Hoosier," he continued.
