Over the course of the Spring, one name that has been making waves (nationally) is Ryan Jones Jr. The 6’9 forward from Judah Nation 17u and The Rock High School (FL) has been showcasing his immense talent on the PRO16 circuit leaving our staff very impressed with this young man.
Jones is a force to be reckoned with, thanks to his impressive combination of size, strength, and athleticism. He possesses a physical presence that allows him to dominate the paint and outmuscle his opponents. Jones’ ability to move his weight around with ease gives him a significant advantage, making it difficult for defenders to contain him.
What sets Jones apart is his finesse around the basket. Despite his imposing physique, he possesses delicate hands and a soft touch, enabling him to finish plays with finesse. While he excels as a back-to-the-basket and pick-and-roll player, he has also demonstrated his versatility by knocking down trail three-pointers. This improving ability to stretch the floor adds another dimension to his game and increasing his overall ceiling.
