ESPN Player Evaluations

Battle-in-the-'Boro-July 2014: Length, athleticism and potential next-level impact; developing mid-range game consistency to the arc, consistent effort is the key to collegiate contribution; quick leaper, active on glass. (Olson)

Battle-in-the-'Boro-July 2013: Ultra-athletic insider with off-the-charts potential; quick first step in mid-post attack, finishes over and vs. contact in the key; quick leaper, active defender out of area; superb in uptempo game; a fast-rising star at the next level. (Olson)

EBA Super 64-June 11: One of the most impressive 2015's to date. Good size, length and athleticism combine with an already developing skill set to make her a presence on the floor. On the block or from the elbow her attack is quick and aggressive. She sweeps the ball on the catch clearing space for her explosive and extended first step. Her ability to put it on the floor gets her around defenders down low or up high and even shows some potential for wing play down the road. The left hand needs to come along but she's still willing to put it to use. Her build is solid with good strength and there's no hesitancy to utilize it on either end of the floor. She'll trigger the break off the boards or get out and run with the guards searching for the easy looks. Still lots of work to be done but the tools and work ethic seem to be in place. Should be interesting to see what she does with them. (Lewis)

Deep South Classic-April 11: Good size and moves well. Good hands through traffic and stays active on the floor. Shows an understanding of the game and establishes early position. (Gray)

June 8, 2012: There is a certain balance between upside and production that validates a college prospect as a potential "kid to watch." Potential can only get you so far in basketball before you have to step up and get it done on the floor. Jones, a 6-2 forward, is a perfect example of the kind of balance a prospect needs to have. With great size, length and athletic ability, Jones is a kid who catches your eye the minute she walks into the gym. What separate Jones from other winners of the genetic lottery is her ability to make things happen on the court. Jones has developed into a solid mid-range jump shooter who is comfortable catching the ball in the post and making a scoring move. Jones had multiple catches where she established sound post position and made a play, a good sign of things to come as she continues to add strength to her frame and polish her skill set. (Moore)
