Lazeric Jones, a junior college point guard from Illinois, is in attendance at the UCLA-Colorado State game at Pauley Pavilion tonight.
The Bruins, badly in need of backcourt depth, have offered Jones a scholarship. He said that he would fly home Wednesday and talk it over with his parents before deciding when to commit.
The 6-1, 200-pound player hails from the same high school as Derrick Rose and is considered strong and quick for the position.
From chicagohoops.com back in November:
"Former Chicago Simeon star Lazeric Jones of John A. Logan College is seeing his recruiting stock flying high on the heels of a strong summer, and a very strong jamboree run this fall. Jones has now established himself as one of the top junior college prospects in the country.
Jones, a 6'2", 200-pound point guard, is a superb floor leader who excels both with his ability to score, and also with his ball-distribution skills. Jones has a strong frame which allows him to absorb contact, and to then easily finish off his drives with buckets."
