6-1 PG Tyrell Jones of Orlando announced a top 12 Thursday and the list includes Clemson. Also on his list are Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee, Kansas State, Iowa State, Western Kentucky, Ole Miss, Florida, Oklahoma State, Minnesota and SMU.
Jones said Clemson has been down to see him work out on more than one occasion.
“They’ve been recruiting me hard. They’ve been showing a lot of love towards me and that’s why they are on my list,” Jones said. “They say I would play a lot as a freshman, about 20-25 minutes a game.”
Jones said Clemson recruiter Antonio Reynolds Dean is in regular contact. He has taken official visits to Ole Miss and Auburn and has not decided on the other three. He said Clemson has a decent chance for one of them.
“If they keep doing what they are doing recruiting wise then that may happen,” he said.
Jones said all of his final 12 schools are recruiting him hard. There is no favorite among the those schools. He’s not sure when he’ll make his decision and is not sure if he’ll sign in November.
Jones averaged 19 points per game and is considered a national top 20 point guard prospect in the 2019 class by Rivals.
