We have Whitney Young 2019 small forward Keenan Jones pegged as a three and D guy at the next level.  He showed a lot more than that later in the spring with Young & Reckless 17U.  Slashing and being more aggressive attacking the basket.  Plus defender that can knock down threes spotting up.  D2 potential.

Jones spoke about his game.

“My strengths are getting to the basket and playing defense.  Blocking shots.”

How did his junior campaign go with the Dolphins?

“We made it to the state championship game and lost to Belleville West.  I could have did better, but I had some injuries at the end of the season.”

For Jones and his fellow juniors and sophomores returning that experience is huge heading into next year.

“It is going to help us a lot.  Now we know how to get there and what to do.  We just have to do it again.”

Any college interest?

“Quincy has text me one time and said they are going to come to my games and check me out.”
