Derrick Jones played in the Under Armour tournament and played quite well, according to Reggie Rankin of ESPN. Rankin did a blog on ESPN's Recuiting Nation, and gave his thoughts on who the stand-outs were of that tournament. Jones made Rankin's list. Holding a Kentucky offer, this is good to hear for the Kentucky fans.
What Rankin Wrote on Jones:
Special athleticism, Part I: Derrick Jones
Jones is an impressive athlete with a combination of great length, athleticism and high-level explosiveness. He plays above the rim on the break and on all clear paths to the rim and will also not hesitate to leap over a late-arriving help-side defender. His ball skills are improving along with his shot, and his upside is tremendous. He is also a capable multiple-position defender. Jones reminds us of former UNLV great Stacey Augmon.
