A familiar face to the Arizona coaching staff this recruitment circuit is 2016 Andrew Jones. The 6’4 Texas native who had a huge summer made a name for himself and saw his recruitment blow up.
He recently trimmed his list to seven schools that includes Arizona, Texas, Baylor, SMU, Louisville, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State but more importantly this past weekend Jones completed his official visit to Tucson to get a chance to experience the campus with his parents.
“Yes sir, they loved it. The biggest difference about this trip than the last was that my parents got to come with me and it was a really good visit,” he said.
A few weeks ago Jones completed his unofficial visits before trimming his list to his final seven but did so alone.
“This time I’m bringing my parents with me on my officials. It gives us all a chance to see what the schools have to offer both with academics and the team,” he said.
The four star, top 30 player revealed they did much of the same as compared to his last visit where his parents got to take in the campus but still made time to watch film with the coaching staff as well.
“I’m more comfortable with the coaches and players and that’s the biggest difference to last time.” During the trip Jones did get a chance to sit in and watch practice. “I didn’t get to run with them but I had a chance to watch the guards work out.”
The Texas native is as competitive as they come.
“I think I could do good in college right now.” Previously, Jones mentioned to PGU that Miller and the staff are recruiting him as a combo guard and he could spend some time at both the 1 and the 2 and that sentiment hasn’t changed.
A playmaker with the ball in his hands and a threat to find space without it, Miller has made Jones a priority for the 2016 class. Having a busy fall schedule Jones has scheduled an in home visit with the Arizona coaching staff on Thursday.
