“Over the past couple months, since the end of July, I’ve built a strong relationship with coach [Shaka] Smart,” Jones told Scout.com. “It was to the point where we were texting every morning. He was sending me motivational quotes about how to be a leader and how to stay positive.”
Jones was in attendance as the Longhorns defeated No. 3 ranked North Carolina at the Erwin Center over the weekend.
Jones is the No. 7 ranked point guard and No. 28 player overall in Scout.com's Class of 2016 rankings. Shaka Smart’s recruiting class already includes Top 100 recruits James Banks and Jacob Young.
