court. He is crafty with either hand and gets in the lane consistently off the bounce for tough finishes. His three point shot is quick and well above average, as he can get it off on any defender regardless of size. What I love about Jones is his ability to make those better around him. He made the right plays all weekend whether it was lobs, quick dishes to the perimeter off his penetration, and from a hustle standpoint point diving for loose balls late in games. Jones is the real deal at the point guard position and his recent flood of offers has shown it, gaining them from schools such as Clemson, Virginia Tech, and Xavier this live period alone.
Session II Showcase. He is a smooth operating point guard that initiated the Team RWA offense with ease. He can effect the game without scoring, which he did on a number of occasions, but wasn’t afraid to put his mark on games with his shot making ability as well. He is a 6’ lefty that plays with great pace, not allowing faster players and teams to speed him up. He knows how to work the pick and roll and can finish with either hand in traffic. His shot selection was impeccable and he simply understands the flow of the game knowing when to hit the right teammate at the right time. His pull-up mid range jumper from the elbow was his most effective shot but he can get hot from the perimeter as he had an impressive string of consecutive shot making possessions from deep, making on ball defenders look silly in the process. Santiago is headed to Hargrave Military Academy but does hold an offer from Frank Martin and the University of South Carolina.
