Matt Jones commits to Duke

Class of 2013 shooting guard Matt Jones has committed to Duke, according to Scout.com’s Evan Daniels. The 6-foot-4 guard out of Desoto, Texas is the 23rd-ranked player in the class and the fifth-best at his position. He held offers from a number of elite programs but Duke had been the favorite for quite some time.

I contacted Matt Jones via text message once I learned of the commitment and this is what he had to say:

“Hey man I’m eating at Qdoba right now with Hubby. Make sure you do the night post.”

People around Jones believe he will pursue a law degree at Duke. I’ve been told his plan is to practice for a few years at Jones & Bruce and then switch to a full-time radio and television career.

    Quality investigative journalism. I think we should boo him if we see him in Rupp.

    According to BallaScouts.com:

    Our service has rated Matt Jones the #1 overall best dork in the class of 2013. While not blessed with great athleticism, Jones’ defensive nature makes him a terror when his opponent has the ball or is placing a call. His unique ability to draw phantom charges and talk over his opponent will make him the perfect fit at Duke and/or talk radio.

    BEST…….POST……EVER!!!! I totally lost it, and am still laughing…..This is way too much. And people can think I am weird for laughing so hard, but Drew Franklin is on a roll, as Woo said on the radio show, Drew once said: “No Consistency At All” then he reverses the cruse, and now this..Keep it up Drew.

    If the 2013 Matt Jones had Larry Bruner as his
    coach he would be the #1 SG in the class!

    Funny post, but this could have ramifications for the Cats and not just in reference to the Harrisons as mentioned above. This may affect Julius Randle in a positive way for Duke.

    24, don’t know which is funnier… Matt’s pic or the fact that you referenced “Pretty in Pink”.
