Jones Sets Final Visit Dates

The recruiting process is nearing its end for Kevin Jones. The 6-foot-8 big man recently set his final four visit dates and he'll head to Indiana for midnight madness festivities on Friday.

Kevin Jones has taken one official visit (Ohio State) and now he's set to embark on a few more. The highly recruited forward out of Mount Vernon (N.Y.) High leaves this weekend for the first of four consecutive visits.

"We are going to Indiana this week," Kevin's brother, Gerard, said. "We are leaving on Friday. The week after we are supposed to be going to West Virginia on the 19th. After that we have UMass."

The week following the Massachusetts visit, Jones will then take his fifth and final trip to Pittsburgh, which will be November 3rd. Shortly after his last official visit, a decision will be made.

"We feel from the in-home visits that we learned the stuff that we needed to learn about these schools," the elder Jones said. "I guess the official visits will round everything else out."

"We are definitely going to make the decision in the early signing period," he continued. "We are going to have all of the visits already done, we'll just have to do the pros and cons of each school and maybe make a few more calls."

Although he's not ready to release a favorite, it sounds like he 6-foot-8, 195-pound power forward is starting to figure out who he likes.

"They are all on the same level right now. We have some stuff in mind, but we are going to keep that close to the vest because that changes all the time. But Kevin does have a few schools that he likes a little more than others.
