4-Star PG Del Jones Taking Unofficial Visit for Pitt-Tennessee Clash
Pat Narduzzi and the football team won’t be the only program at Pitt hosting some elite recruits on Saturday.
Jeff Capel and his staff will be busy with a handful of recruits including a highly rated prospect.
2024 4-star point guard Del Jones attends Huntington Prep in Huntington, West Virginia but is from Arlington, Virginia, tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’ll be at Acrisure Stadium for the Tennessee game on an unofficial visit.
Jones (6’3″, 170-pounds) is rated by Rivals.com as the No. 89 overall prospect in the Class of 2024, while 247Sports has him as No. 78. He is ranked as the No. 1 junior prospect in Virginia.
Along with Pitt, Jones holds offers from NC State, Rutgers, South Carolina,
247Sports hoops analyst Eric Bossi describes Jones as:
“A promising point guard who is coached well on the high school level, Jones is a point guard whose bread and butter is attacking the paint via the dribble. He is able to change speeds effectively, has some toughness to him and is a very crafty finisher at the rim. He is a good enough shooter to keep defenders honest, has pull up game and is a solid distributor of the ball.”
Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up Wednesday night with Jones to get his thoughts on his upcoming visit to Pittsburgh.
“I feel like my current relationship with Pitt is pretty good,” said Jones. “I communicate with Coach Brown often and the reason I’m coming to visit is to see the rest of the coaching staff, see the atmosphere and to see if Pitt is a good fit for me. Something that interested me about possibly coming to Pitt is the conversations I’ve had with Coach Brown and the way that he’s consistently reached out to me to try and build our relationship.”
“I’m looking forward to learn the guy’s schedule and how like to play, what the coaches think I need to work on before coming into college and really just observing the school’s atmosphere.”
Other players making unofficial visits to Pitt basketball include Matthew Gilhool, Jaland Lowe and Thomas Sorber.
