Kameron Jones, a class of 2021 guard from Evangelical Christian, was responsible for one of the most explosive scoring performances we saw on the circuit this spring. With seemingly little effort, Jones dropped 42 points in a win for Team Thad over District WAWG during UAA III in New Jersey earlier this month. During a recent interview with Prep Hoops, he spoke on his overall game and goals among other topics.
