Isaiah Jones has been on a mission this season. The forward from Arlington (TN) High School has shined with PSB Elite Nashville on our HoopSeen platform. He was one of the big reasons why his club won the 17U division of the historic Best of the South tournament.
Jones shot lights out from the wing and was a perfect option for the drive and kick skill of Furman bound PG Jaylen Pegues. Jones took full advantage of the opportunity. He was electric in the championship game, saving the best of last. He scored 26 points in the championship game against the other PSB Nashville club.
Kentucky State has offered, it is his only offer at the moment, and he has taken a visit to the school. And no disrespect to Kentucky State, but it’s almost criminal that they are the only school that has offered a scholarship to this point.
There is a long list of suitors. Don’t mistake that. He’s being recruited heavily.
Jones said he has heard from Alabama, Arkansas Pine Bluff, Bowling Green, Florida Atlantic, Furman, Georgia Tech, James Madison, Lipscomb, Oral Robert, SIU-Edwardsville, Tennessee State, Tennessee Tech, Towson, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, VMI and Western Kentucky.
What will he be in search of at the next level?
“Honestly, somewhere I'm going to get plenty of time and where makes me feel like home,” Jones said. “(I’m) trying to go to the NBA so if I feel a college can help me do that, I will know it for sure.”
