Gophers Offer Another 2008 Point Guard

Even with Nathen Garth already committed to the Gophers for 2008, Tubby Smith has offered a scholarship to 2008 PG Verdell Jones III out of Illinois.

Jones is a 6-4, 160 lbs point guard, ranked as a three-star recruit by both Rivals and Scout. He is ranked as the 16th or 17th best point guard in the class, depending on which site you check.

With that height to weight ratio, as you can guess one of his listed weakness is his strength. Scout says his strengths are his ball-handling, ability to create, and passing, with perimeter shooting and decision making joining strength as his weaknesses. Contradicting Scout, says he has an excellent jump shot, and can slide over to the 2 if needed.

A poster at, combes, has more information and a first hand opinion here.

It's also been reported that Draymond Green has narrowed his list to Michigan, Michigan State, and Indiana.
