Jones Finally Ends Recruitment

After a long drawn out recruiting process, Terrence Jones has come up with his final decision. He'll play ball in the SEC.

The Terrence Jones saga is over.

After calling a press conference, announcing for Washington and then rethinking his decision and considering Kentucky, Terrence Jones made his final decision Wednesday evening.

Jones' high school coach -- Pat Strickland -- confirmed that Jones picked Kentucky just minutes after getting off the phone with Jones' mother -- Linda Mashia-Jones.

"Glitz and glamour," Strickland said when asked why he chose UK. "It's Kentucky. Kentucky the program, the history and I think how good the freshman have done this past year helped as well."

Jones,'s No. 8 overall prospect, opted to just sign financial aid papers, according to Strickland, rather than sign a Letter of Intent.

Jones is the sixth prospect to commit to Kentucky. He joins a pair of five star prospects -- Brandon Knight and Enes Kanter -- as well as Doron Lamb, Stacey Poole and Eloy Vargas.

Throwing Jones in the mix with a trio of five-star prospects, two four-stars and a standout JUCO prospect will catapult Kentucky's class to No. 1 in the nation.
