BASKETBALL: 2008 CLASS: Jarvis Jones

Jarvis Jones, who played with Thaddeus Young at Mitchell High School in Memphis has added Georgia Tech to his list of 4 schools that he will choose from. Memphis is starting to become a GT hotbed with Paul Hewitt. Jones played last week in the Wallace Prather Memorial Classic at Georgia Tech. Jones poured in 42 points in one game which included 11 three-pointers (WOW!). He has already visited Georgia Tech with Thaddeus Young last season, and he loves Atlanta. Jones said Georgia Tech is "HIGH" on his list.

"When nobody else was recruiting me, they were," Jones said. "They got in first. I want a good education and good surroundings."

Jones lists his four schools as Georgia Tech, Illinois, Florida, and Tennessee
