"I see Virginia as a program on the rise," Jones said. "I like the future players they have there with Eric (Wallace) and Sammy (Zeglinski). I see my game fitting in with their games nicely. Those are the kind of guys that I want to play with.
"Playing in the ACC has always been a dream of mine," Jones said. "They are always on TV and always playing the top competition."
