It has been a big year for boys basketball stars in the state of Texas. Ten players on Texas schools are in the ESPN 100 for the Class of 2016. Imagine 10 percent of the top prospects in the class come from one state.
Among those names is Andrew Jones, a 6-4 shooting guard from Irving MacArthur. Jones, ranked No. 29 in the nation and No. 5 in the state, is also staying in his home state, having signed with Texas.
He will now head to New York to represent the Lone Star State in next week’s Jordan Brand Classic. Jones received a banner for his school and was honored for his selection during the Jordan Brand Classic Senior Night presented by American Family Insurance.
Jones and uncommitted big man Marques Bolden from DeSoto will play for the West. Kentucky signee De’Aaron Fox from Cypress Lakes will play for the East.
