Simeon 2018 power forward Messiah Jones tells PrepHoopsIllinois that he has decommitted from Drake after head coach Niko Medved took a coaching job with Colorado State on Thursday.  He told us why he opened things back up.

“Because Coach Niko leaving and my relationship with the coaches.  Really played a huge impact.”

What will he be looking for in a new school?

“A coach I can have a good relationship with and a great program.”

Jones is the #10 overall prospect in the state of Illinois and #1 ranked power forward.  He is a high energy forward that was a huge part of the Wolverines success this season.  Active around the hoop with a quick second jump and shows face up skills offensively.

We expect a lot of mid-major schools to get involved with the Simeon standout.  Drake’s other commit Danville’s Kendle Moore is still committed at this time, but they are evaluating the situation.
