"High Point lacrosse program has achieved great things over a short period of time and is now regarded as one of the top-ranked programs in the country. The coach's enthusiasm for me to be a part of the program and the style of play I experienced at their prospect camp made me feel that I could be a big part of this program over the coming years," Jones said. "Also the academic options really suited my plans and after visiting the campus I felt I would be happy studying at High Point for four years."
Jones plays club lacrosse with Top Gun Fighting Clams. He was also considering UMass.
"My advice would be to find the right travel team who plays in the tournaments which are going to be targeted by the college coaches at the level you want to play at. I was lucky when my dad made contact with Justin Walker from Top Gun Fighting Clams at the start of 2019 and he knew exactly where to have me play," Jones said of his top takeaway from his recruiting process. "I started playing a few local tournaments for Clams and progressed to their top team playing the most elite tournaments available. Based on the emails I received from coaches on September 1st I then attended those school prospect days and from there received some offers."
“I’d like to give a huge thanks to Scott Weddell who runs English Knights Elite,” Jones added. “Scott runs the UK's only tour team which travels to the US every two years to play. I was lucky enough to be selected in 2015 for that Summers tour and that gave me the belief I could play at the level required to go to college in the U.S.”
