Texas A&M made its first move within the 2018 class today thanks to the commitment of four-star guard Antwann Jones. A 6-foot-5 scoring guard and a member of the Rivals150, Jones brings a polished perimeter scoring skillset to College Station along with great size and strength to the perimeter.
Originally a member of the 2018 recruiting class for Oklahoma State, Jones, who had committed to the Big 12 program in mid-September, re-opened his college recruitment last month following the FBI sting that saw OK State assistant coach Lamont Evans arrested on bribery charges.
A member of the Each 1 Teach 1 unit on the Nike EYBL circuit, Jones averaged over 10 points, three rebounds and two assists per game, displaying a strong scoring acumen along with an underrated ability to create for others in the half-court setting.
The Aggies do not have many pressing needs this fall with its outgoing senior class due to the upcoming departures of Duane Wilson and Tony Trocha-Morelas. They could potentially lose a trio of talented frontcourt pieces with DJ Hogg, Robert Williams and Tyler Davis opting for the NBA next spring, of which makes Jones’ commitment a valuable one as he can be leaned upon early for his bucket getting potential.
The first commitment in the 2018 class for the Aggies, Jones' commitment is now official after signing for the SEC program on Tuesday.
