Incredible combination of length and tremendous athleticism
Explosive at the rim
Runs the floor extremely well
Smooth driving to the bucket
Ability to rebound and then lead the break
Wingspan helps his shot blocking and rebounding
Solid mid-range game
Stands around too often instead of finding a body to box out in rebounding situations
Still a work in progress with his all-around offensive game
Will need to develop a better one-on-one offensive attack
Free throw shooting
Summary: It is rare to find a player of Jones' height with the athleticism that he possesses. He does not yet have a complete basketball game but all the skills are there for him to be a dynamic NBA player. However, he suffered through a disappointing freshman campaign which hurt his stock, ultimately resulting in his return to Waco. He is still a top-10 prospect based on talent alone and could sneak into the top five if he really emerges as a sophomore.
Player Comparison: Anthony Randolph. Potential, potential, potential. That is all we hear about when people discuss Jones and we keep waiting for Randolph to cash in on his potential as well. Both players are tall, lengthy, thin and athletically gifted, but still raw in their all-around game. Randolph has not reached that potential yet, but if Jones does, he can be a very special player.
@Drunk Ass Jerry To your points.... M. Hyatt is excellent but lacks the size many feel needed for OT and see him as a OG in the NFL... Safety is still a need for the Bucs ... RB it seems like C. Sims is always hurt... D. Martin has been up and down... I like J. McNichols alot but see him as their 3rd down back of the future.. I did grab a CB in RD4 for them... and 2018`s edge rushing talent isn`t deep into the later rounds..I see them using F/A for edge help more than the 2018 draft.
Seems like a month ago that i was 8-2 in two days of MLB play, actually it was 4 days ago. Another crap result yesterday and I'm getting a little cheesed about it. If I had not used hedging techniques I would be bleeding coin by now, but since I am, it's just a stinger. For today: In an ongoing par from yesterday I'm sticking the Under 8.5 -115 in the Braves/Dodger game in the second tier spot. Start up pars with Astros: -118, Boston -123, and AZ +1.5 RL -160, all with two open. GL and hopefully the Red tide will fade.
