Jones is a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining.
Juwan Howard and Michigan hosted a Zoom call with Jones on Monday night. Earlier this week, we published an in-depth breakdown with film, advanced statistics and more about what Jones does well and how he could fit in Michigan’s system.
Jones had this to say about Michigan to 247 Sports:
“They had a great year last year. I spoke with their guard/leader Mike Smith who’s leaving and he said great things. He was in the same situation as me coming in from a smaller school and he made a big impact. Also talking with Juwan Howard, Howard Eisley, Saddi Washington, Phil Martelli just the whole coaching staff having a great conversation. They showed me how I can help and how I can contribute right away. I liked Seeing the film and picking Juwan Howard’s brain and him picking my brain. I feel like that would be a great fit if I chose that school.”
