Indiana transfer Curtis Jones told ESPN he will play at Oklahoma State. Nice pickup for Mike Boynton.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) January 1, 2018
Jones had a 38.3 field goal percentage and shot 38.1 percent from the 3-point line last season at Indiana. Jones’ career started with 15 points in a win against the university of Kansas his Freshman year.
Jones stands at 6’4”, 170 pounds. With size like that alongside Michael Weathers who will be eligible next season, the Cowboys should have a lengthy, uber-athletic backcourt.
The highly-touted transfer was a four-star guard out of high school, holding offers from teams like Indiana, Georgetown, Maryland, Xavier, Texas Tech, and more. Former Hoosier head man Tom Crean said this about Jones during the recruiting process.
When I saw him play about a month ago, I was really impressed with his demeanor. He’s going to have to get stronger. He knows that and he’s going to really have to deal with the rigors of this level, but the quickness, the quick-twitch, the mindset, that stuff’s all there."
