Less than 24 hours after committing to Texas A&M, five-star prospect Anthony Jones is back on the board and an integral member of his family is taking a lead role in his recruitment.
"I want to let you know that my son still has his options open. I wasn't there for the interview and I should have been there," said Jones' mother Dee Curtis about Anthony committing to Texas A&M during an interview with Fox 26 in Houston. "I'm his mom, and I know he was coerced into committing. I know my son, and I'm sure he just said what he said to get them out of his face.
Jones, who plans to attend his neighborhood school Houston Yates High School despite reports of him transferring to Oak Hill Academy, concurred with everything his mother said.
"I agree with everything my mom just said," said Jones. "I was rushed into committing, and I still want to weigh my options."
Texas A&M is still an option along with Baylor and Texas for Jones' services. Jones, a 6-foot-9, 185-pound small forward, is not sure when he will make a decision, but he won't be making it without his mother's input.
"I don't know when I will decide, but I'm not making a decision without my mom," said Jones.
The No. 23 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, Jones is scheduled to attend the NIKE Vince Carter Skills Camp at the end of this month.
