2024 6’5 Jadis Jones from New Madrid County Central high school has been a target for a few schools and he recently earned some national recognition, being ranked No. 121 by Rivals. Phenom Hoops was in touch with Jones to learn more about his game and how summer ball has been with Brad Beal. He also discusses the latest in his recruitment and the schools that have been staying in touch with him.
“I am a strong, very aggressive player, great leader, love to get to the basket and tear the rim down or pull up for a jump shot. I am mostly working on getting my jump shot more consistent.”
“This summer has been good to me and my team. I am playing EYBL with Brad Beal Elite 16u and I have been able to show that I can compete with the best on the highest level of high school basketball.”
Right now, Jones holds three offers from SEMO, Robert Morris, and Louisiana-Monroe, as those three schools have been staying in touch with him and continuing to build a relationship with him. He also has heard from a few others but he is hoping to show more this summer to earn more attention from college coaches.
“I heard from Arkansas before EYBL started and recently heard from Miami (OH) as well. But I am staying patient and still working; I feel they will come.
