Strengths: Another one of the great shot-blockers in this years draft class thanks to his great vertical leaping ability and timing ... Has really came along this year offensively now has the ability to shoot a turnaround jump shot and has added a hook shot ... Really knows how to use his body and draw contact in the post ... Excellent rebounder definitely one of the best in the ACC conference this past year ... As mobile as you can be for a 7- foot center easily out maneuvers opposing interior players .... Has a little bit of a mean streak in him plays with a lot of fire .... Has really shown a willingness to learn this year about the fundamentals of the post..... Very athletic has an impressive 37-inch vertical and runs the floor well for a center ....

Weakness: One of the most frustrating things about Jones is that he has had bouts with inconsistency throughout his career ... Could stand to work on his release when he shoots the ball often he doesn't put enough ark into the shot .... Work ethic has come into question because of the fact Jones hasn't always been in the greatest of condition ... Has a habit to pick up dumb fouls during the game although this became less of a issue this year he could still learn how to control his body more when defending ... Post footwork still is a little choppy to say the least ... Offensive game is still growing he's just now adding more moves to his repertoire ... Not a very good free throw shooter ....
