Jalen Jones, UNO’s latest men’s basketball commitment, can do a little bit of everything.
“He’s a pretty special kid,” said Nick Lawrence, Jones’ coach at Clinton (Iowa) High School. “He’s very versatile. He can handle the ball, shoot it, has a nice post game. He has a slender build, but he’s very athletic, handles the ball well and he’s smart — he knows how to get others involved. He has the size, length and athleticism to play and defend multiple positions on the court.”
