Jones Finds Home In A-10

Phil Martelli's Hawks secured a commitment from one of the top seniors in Ohio. Carl Jones is off the table.

The St. Joseph's Hawks love their guards. On Monday, Phil Martelli's program secured a commitment from Garfield Heights (Ohio) High's Carl Jones.

"I think the fact that they like to play smaller guards and let them go," Garfield coach Sonny Johnson told "(Martelli) likes scoring guards and they play small guards."

As a junior, Jones accounted for 26 points and 6 rebounds.

Johnson watched his star as Xavier, Penn State and Providence all made pitches to Jones. "He evaluated the whole situation. He had a lot of schools come in. They offered him before any "big" school did."
