Marquette Adds ‘Under-The-Radar’ Guard for 2021 Recruiting Class
Marquette Golden Eagles kicked off their 2021 recruiting class yesterday. Golden Eagles added Kameron Jones, a 6’4 guard from Tennessee. Marquette will need the 2021 class to be somewhat of a rebuilding group. They’re losing three key players next year, and they have multiple scholarships open. One person taking that scholarship is Kameron Jones, an unheralded guard from Tennessee. He is 6’4 180 and from everything, you read or watch this guy is flying under-the-radar due to circumstances with COVID-19. Golden Eagles may have found a gem.
He can score the basketball. Anonymous Eagle had a good find that he was the leading scorer for U16 Under Armour AAU in the country. Judging by the video research, that’s true as well. He is the ballhandler and can score from anywhere. He is not one dimensional. But for Jones to only have mid-major offers might mean Marquette jumped on this kid early before the others will get there. The coaches for Jones expected him to blow up this summer. Hopefully, that doesn’t deter his commitment but that wouldn’t shock me if some heavy hitters come calling.
Dwayne Killings, Marquette’s new assistant, deserves some credit for this recruit. Killings played college ball with his Jones’ high school coach leading to the recruitment. If Jones ascends as many project him to do this summer, Killings found a diamond in the rough. Many were concerned when Stan Johnson left to be the head coach at Loyola Marymount if things would change since Johnson is a dynamite recruiter. It appears that isn’t the case early on. Killings has done some great work with the 2020 class and now moved on to the 2021 class.
