Rock Island 2016 point guard Jason Jones gave his verbal commitment to attend Missouri Western State University on Wednesday night.  The 5’9” floor general who has been a standout with Quad City Elite throughout the last three summers running the show is a great pick up for the program.  He told us why they were his choice.

“Missouri Western just felt like home to me.  They also have my major and St. Joe’s is a wonderful town.  I bonded well with the players.  The coaching staff is excellent and they made me feel welcome.”

How does he see his game fitting in their system?

“They play an up-tempo style which I am used to playing.  I’m comfortable.”

The pass first point guard is a shifty guard that is quick off the dribble and accelerates with the ball in his hands.  Jones does a nice job of getting in the lane and making plays for himself and others.  The 2016 guard is a solid passer.  This tough floor general handles it well in traffic and can finish with athletic layups in the paint.  In transition he excels pushing the rock and getting it up the floor to his teammates.  Overall his leadership at the point guard position is evident.  Guys want to follow him!

Jones is the #50 prospect in the senior class and #13 overall point guard!
