Virginia Tech basketball: Hokies land commitment from 4-star center Ryan Jones

Mike Young and the Virginia Tech Hokies landed a big commitment on Monday when four-star big man Ryan Jones announced he was a Hokie.

Jones is a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward/center from The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla., and picked the Hokies over his other finalist, the Florida Gators. Interestingly, Jones picked the Hokies over his hometown Gators.

What are the Hokies getting in Jones?

From all indications, Jones is an excellent rebounder and has long arms. He could play the four or five for the Hokies once he arrives next year. But the biggest positive from all scouting reports on Jones and watching some of his highlights is that he has an excellent shot.
