ESPN No. 29 ranked high school senior Andrew Jones is lighting it up this year.
The 6-4, 195-pound shooting guard is averaging a whopping 30 points a game, along with 10 rebounds and 7 assists for MacArthur H.S. (Irving, TX) this season.
The explosive Jones has been even hotter recently, putting up four huge games of 35, 38, 36, and 46 points during the last month.
“I’ve just been on a roll lately,” Jones said to USA Today. “I have to have a spark headed into the playoffs. It’s been fun.”
With his stellar play this season, the Texas commit was selected to play in the prestigious McDonald’s All American Game.
“Man it feels great!” said Jones of the honor. “It’s definitely a dream come true. I can’t wait to get to Chicago and experience everything. I’ve been watching the game for a while so to be able to play in it is definitely big for me.”
Jones’ torrid play this year comes off his strong summer, when he averaged 18.4 points and 3.4 assists at the Nike Peach Jam.
He also had a 30-point explosion at Peach Jam against No. 2 senior point guard De’Aaron Fox and his Houston Hoops team.
The gritty Jones was injured early in is junior season, but came back to lead MacArthur to the Texas 6A final four.
“Jones is a tough guy’s guard,” says Scout.com’s Rob Harrington. “He’s 6-4 and slender but possesses a lean strength and plays a physical style. Comfortable either on or off the ball, he loves to utilize an explosive first step to beat his man off the dribble and then simply bully him on the way to basket.”
At Texas, Jones will join fellow 2016 recruits No. 56 James Banks, a 6-11 center; and point guard Jacob Young.
