Former Memphis guard Antwann Jones took an official visit to Creighton on Thursday.

Jones is a 6-foot-6, 205-pound shooting guard who averaged 4.7 points and 3.0 rebounds in 16.7 minutes of action during his lone season with the Tigers. He was previously a consensus top-100 player and four-star recruit out of Orlando (Fla.) Oak Ridge High School.

But Jones entered the transfer portal a couple of weeks ago. Now he’s considering Creighton.

Jones was on the Memphis team that faced off against Creighton last month in the NIT. The Jays won 79-67 at the CHI Health Center. Jones had six points, six rebounds and three steals in 24 minutes off the bench.

Jones would have to sit out a year according to NCAA transfer rules. But he’ll have three seasons of eligibility left.

The Jays still have two open scholarships for next year’s roster. They’re set to add incoming freshman guards Shereef Mitchell and Jalen Windham, who committed to CU Wednesday. But they could lose seniors-to-be Martin Krampelj and Davion Mintz, who have both declared for the NBA draft and are considering turning pro.
