4-Star SG Antwann Jones Commits to Texas A&M, Per HS Coach

Published by Bleacher Report on Tue, 14 Nov 2017

Antwann Jones has given theTexas A&M Aggiesa huge recruiting win after pledging to play basketball for the school starting in 2018.Jones' high school head coach atOrlando (Florida) Oak Ridge, Steve Reece, told Scout.com's Evan Daniels Tuesday that Jones has verbally committed to TAMU.With regard to Jones' decision, Reece said, "He just liked the fit. He felt like he knew the players. He had played at camp with some of the players there. He really liked the coaching staff too. ... He loved the environment and the culture they have down there."Jones is one of the nation's best wing-scoring recruits. Per 247Sports, he's a 4-star prospect who is ranked as the No. 18 shooting guard in the nation and No. 80 overall prospect, per Scout.com.At 6'6" and 210 pounds, Jones has the size and projection to become a dominant scorer at the college level.ESPN.com offered this analysis of Jones' shooting ability:"[Jones]is a big strong wing player that can put the ball in the basket. He has a good feel for the game and can do a little of everything as a player. Good athlete that is probably best attacking the rim off the dribble. Capable shooter from three and shows flashes of being consistent off the catch-and-shoot.Does a great job getting to the boards with his size and body."Reece also chimed in on Jones' skill set, which he believes to be highly versatile:"Twan is an all-around player. He's a really good passer. He has great size, can handle the ball and can score. Watching those guys play the other night, I can see him fitting in really well there."Jones decommitted from Oklahoma State in September and made the jump from the Big 12 to the SEC by settling on Texas A&M.The Aggies struggled to a 16-15 record last season, but they set a school record with 28 wins in the previous campaign.Texas A&M, in itssixth season under Billy Kennedy, already has an upset win against West Virginia this season, and landing an elite prospect in the 2018 class like Jones is a significant step toward remaining in the mix as a potential NCAA tournament team moving forward.
