Jones, who visited Seattle last weekend, is the first recruit to sign with the Husky basketball team since Romar was hired as head coach on April 3.
Rated the 10th best small forward in the West by Prep West Hoops, Jones
was a top-100 national player according to several ratings services. Tracy Pearson, publisher of Prep West Hoops, called Jones, "an exceptional athlete. He can run, jump, and make things happen out on the break. He can throw the ball down with authority. He has a ton of upside and now needs to hone his offensive skills, particularly handling the basketball."
Jones averaged 19 points and nine rebounds during his senior season at
Poly High School. The Jackrabbits registered a 30-4 record and finished
as the Southern California Regional runners-up to eventual state
champion Westchester. Jones was named to the 10-man all-state team
selected by Cal-Hi Sports.
Jones in an outstanding defender and an excellent student who has
already achieved a qualifying test score.
Jones was recruited by numerous schools throughout the country and
considered Boston College, Long Beach State, Pepperdine and New Mexico
before selecting Washington.
The Huskies have one more scholarship available for the late signing
period that ends May 15. They are going hard after Muir High School's Ryan Hollins. Hollins is a 6-11 post player that signed an LOI with St Louis. He is current trying to get out of that letter of intent.
