    lots of news and article around the web about Jones


    https://247sports.com/college/basket...nson-134425898

    This is a good article. Jones " Coach told me Naji is declaring for NBA aft this..."

    Another of 5 articles has a quote from Colby saying he is recruiting Ben Carlson.

    Great news. Chatter at Cintas today was that if it didn't happen today it wasn't going to. Glad to see it did!

    Couldn't go a year without a Jones!

    Huge get! Sounds like a really smart kid. Academics are very important to him. Boom!
    I have complete faith in coach Steele and Co.

    This is a bald-faced lie! The quote was, "They think he could be pretty close to leaving for the NBA..."

    I must have read 6 Colby "Cheese" Jones commitment articles today.

    Ok chill. Deep breaths. I read the article and got the impression that Jones felt like he was a good fit since he can fill in when Naji goes ba-bye.

    It really was: Jones felt like he was a good fit since he can fill in IF Naji goes ba-bye.

    It is a great day to be an X fan!

    I know we've had high recruits in the past, but it seems like this staff is closing on more of their targets. Makes you wonder why Mack seemed to struggle in closing. And Odom and Jones are openly recruiting! How's that for helping the staff get things going in the right direction?!

    Between this year's class and the next, we'll have the backcourt in great shape. This Jones kid seems like a go getter. Might need to work on his shot more, but there's time for that. What's interesting to me is this class looks more like the type of players Nova has been closing on. Hopefully their excellent program is raising all ships in the Big East.
