The late signing period is right around the corner and athletes like Dillon Jones are on the clock.
Earlier this month, Jones had one offer from Missouri State. Then three more came to him in the past past few days starting with Grand Canyon new’s head coach Bryce Drew. From the moment coach Drew received the job, “we’ve been establishing a relationship,” Jones said, and after a while they decided to offer.
Western Carolina followed with another scholarship offer and then Weber State. These four along with Dayton have been in contact with Jones in the past month or so.
He’s still very open within his recruitment but don’t be surprised if he decides to choose between the four programs that have offered in the very near future.
“I’m still open but don’t be surprised if I make a decision soon,” Jones said. “I don’t have any dates or anything, and I’m still open, but eventually the time is going to come.”
Jones has become a very reliable prospect since he decided to transfer to Sunrise Christian. The basketball powerhouse helped his game and helped mold him into a very successful student-athlete, both on and off the court.
Every single coach recruiting him at the moment has expressed that they’re pleased with his progress. His maturation over the past year is what got most of them involved.
“A lot of coaches like the improvement that I’ve made over the past year after I transferred to Sunrise,” Jones said. “I changed my body and my overall game. I’m quicker off the bounce, I’m able to switch and guard multiple positions, I’m stretching the floor with my three ball, and just overall, how versatile I am.”
