The 6-foot-3 guard has already taken official visits to Indiana and Georgetown. His father, Curtis Jones Sr., recently told Inside the Hall that the family’s visit to Bloomington went very well.
“It was a great visit,” Jones Sr. said. “The campus, the tradition, the coaching staff, everything was really, really good. The tradition, you can feel it when you’re on the campus. It’s a big deal in college basketball. That part was great.”
According to Adam Zagoria, Indiana was at Huntington Prep on Tuesday to watch Jones, as was Georgetown. Miles Bridges, a five-star forward who is considering IU, Kentucky and Michigan State, also plays at Huntington Prep.
