Jones has not graduated, but will likely look to finish enough courses to graduate this summer. By doing he’d make himself a graduate transfer and immediately eligible at his next school.
The 6-foot-4 combo guard averaged 21.9 minutes per game last season on a depleted Cowboys roster. His departure means that OSU head coach Mike Boynton will now have two spots to fill for the 2019-20 season. Should those spots be filled, they will join a class that includes five freshmen and a graduate transfer. Needless to say, Gallagher-Iba Arena will be filled with new faces next season.
One remaining target is Denton, Texas, forward Jalen Wilson. The former Michigan signee named OSU in his top five after requesting his release due to former Wolverines coach John Beilein’s decision to accept the Cleveland Cavaliers head coach position.
Wilson would be the highest rated commit for OSU in the class of 2019 and is one of the few high school options that Boynton has as far as filling those last two spots go. Expect one or both to filled by graduate transfers. Boynton may also choose to not fill the final spot.
