The Cowboy froncourt was left decimated just two weeks ago with the departure of Yankuba Sima, but today, they patched things up a bit in the form of a big, big, big man.
Kentrevious Jones, formerly a Xavier signee, has committed to Oklahoma State and will be eligible immediately.
His recruiting profile won’t blow you away, but he’s a big-time player. After his decommitment from Xavier, programs like Ohio State, Tennessee, and Auburn were after him. Before committing to Oklahoma State this go-round, Illinois, New Mexico State, and Jacksonville were hot on the trail.
New Mexico State, Illinois, Oklahoma State and Jacksonville have reached out to 2018 6'10 big man Kentrevious Jones of Quality Education Academy (NC). @TheReal_Bigk— Justin Byerly (@JustinByerly) January 12, 2018
The 6’10’’, 285 pound center could be the remedy for what ails the Pokes in the front court. He will have an opportunity to play big minutes early, but will have to get into D1-ready shape. He’s dropped over 30 pounds in the last year, which shows a willingness and effort to do so. Expect him to contribute mightily in his freshman season.
Jones played in 22 games his junior season, averaging 11 points and four boards, but took a massive leap forward in his senior year. He averaged over 20 points and 8 boards per game. Jones played in seven games his senior season, according to MaxPreps.com. Jones will have four years of eligibility with the Cowboys.
