Oklahoma State men’s basketball has landed a commitment from 6-foot-10 center and former Xavier commit Kentrevious Jones.
Jones, a native of Macon, Ga., announced his decision through his personal Instagram account on Sunday afternoon. Jones is the third commitment in the Cowboys’ 2018 recruiting class.
Jones was originally committed to play at Xavier as part of the Musketeers’ 2017 recruiting class, but spent last season at a prep school in North Carolina after he was ruled academically ineligible to play at Xavier.
Jones visited Oklahoma State this weekend before announcing his commitment to play for coach Mike Boynton and the Cowboys.
Jones’ height is set to provide a tremendous boost to Oklahoma State this season after the Cowboys lost 6-foot-9 forward Mitchell Solomon and 6-foot-11 forward Yankuba Sima after the 2017-18 campaign. Solomon graduated while Sima left the program to pursue a professional career.
Oklahoma State’s 2018 recruiting class was ranked No. 9 in the Big 12 prior to Jones’ announcement, per the 247Sports composite rankings.
