Tre Jones, 6'2 ½, Point Guard, Minnesota, Class of 2018
-Has grown an inch and a half, both in terms of height and shoes, since last being measured in June. Also added five pounds.
-Looks to have improved athletically somewhat. Showed a quicker first step and added aggressiveness attacking opponents off the dribble in the half-court
-Pass-first point guard who is extremely unselfish
-Shows an advanced understanding of how to play pick and roll for a player his age (15)
-Savvy about drawing fouls
-Competitive on defense. Always hustling. Good instincts in passing lanes
-Scraps for rebounds impressively (11.1 per-40 at U16 FIBA Americas)
-Shows soft touch on his floater, and nice footwork stepping into his jumper
-Second youngest player in attendance
-Jump-shot is a major work in progress. Release is not particularly smooth or fluid. Tends to fling the ball at the basket
-Still has work to do on his ability to score inside the arc efficiently.
-Not a prolific scorer in general at this stage
Outlook Tyus' brother showed a great deal of improvement since the first time we evaluated him this past June, both physically and skill-wise. He's a legitimate prospect in his own right, and was one of the better point guards in the camp from the younger group of players.
