TYRELL JONES IS A BAD DUDE

For whatever reason, we hadn't gotten a good enough look at 2019 point guard Tyrell Jones to truly consider the three-star prospect for the Rivals150. That's on us and that is changing in a big way this week.

Because watching him play, all I can think is that he's a bad dude and certainly somebody who deserves serious consideration for the rankings.

The Showtime Ballers guard is fast, he's confident, he can drill a shot and man does he play with some serious toughness.

College coaches are jumping on the bandwagon too. Auburn, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Xavier, Ole Miss, Clemson, Buffalo, Houston, Wichita State, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, St. Louis and several others have jumped into his recruitment and I can't blame them.

So, I asked Jones what he does that has schools going so crazy over him and he kept it pretty simple.

"I run the pick and roll, I'm fast and I get my teammates involved," said Jones. "I shoot the ball, I'm tough and I always play hard."

Jones told me that he will need some time after July to sort things out and come up with an actual list but he did tell me that Auburn stands out as one team who will make any list he comes up with. So, it shouldn't be a surprise that Bruce Pearl and an assistant were watching. Among the others that I was able to spot watching his floor and presumably taking a look at Jones included Florida, Tennessee, VCU, Xavier, Georgia, Arizona State, SMU and Mississippi State just to name a few.

Las Vegas: The Bossi Awards

STOCK BOOSTER - Tyrell Jones

An unranked three-star prospect headed into the final live period, Tyrell Jones will absolutely be ranked in the next edition of 2019 rankings. The point guard has maybe the most appropriate nickname, Turbo, of any player in the senior class because he can turn on the jets and plays with a level of speed that puts him in a class by himself. Jones can also lock you up defensively and is a dangerous jump shooter with range. He racked up double digit offers during the month of July with the latest coming from Louisville, Georgia and Minnesota due to his play in Las Vegas with the Showtime Ballers.

Reminds me more of Davion Mitchell's game FWIW. Comparable on D but maybe Turbo the better outside shooter.

He would be a great pickup. I thought Davion Mitchell had a great future here. Of the players we lost I think Mitchell may hurt us the most as he was a valuable PG who I think would have blossomed this year. We need a solid PG in this class and the next one ideally.

Agreed. One potential hole in our roster right now is how productive our 2nd unit PG will be. We only need 10-12 minutes from Mccormick but hopefully he keeps things steady for us and also buys into his role.

One key to our success last year was how everyone had each other's back regardless of what they were asked to do for the team.
