Terrence Jones, a 6-foot-8 forward from Portland, Ore., has set an official visit to Kansas University on Sunday, Terrence's mother, Linda, told Rivals.com Friday.

Jones, who is the 13th-ranked player according to Rivals, will choose a school on April 30. He has Kentucky, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA, Washington, Arizona and Kansas on his list.

"This is obviously a huge development for (KU) coach (Bill) Self, coach (Kurtis) Townsend and Kansas," said recruiting analyst Shay Wildeboor of Jayhawkslant.com. "They conducted an in-home visit in September. From that point on, Terrence visited several other schools, but hadn't made it to Kansas.

"He is coming in Sunday through Tuesday and is an absolute difference-maker. He's an inside/outside guy who could step in right away and immediately impact the rotation."

Following Saturday's Jordan Brand Classic game in New York City, Jones told the Journal-World that he wanted to visit Lawrence before deciding on a college.

“Hopefully, I will get that done,” Jones said Saturday. “I have one official visit left. I want to use it.”

Jones and recent KU signee Josh Selby have been friends since meeting at the Nike Hoops Jamboree a few years back.

“He’s anxious for me to join him (at KU),” Jones said Saturday. “He feels it would be best for both of us. Possibly, we could do great things there.

If his buddy Ross can't qualify academically....maybe he wants to go w/ Selby? They've developed into good friends over the last year. I am amazed the Jones is actually following through and going to visit. I am stoked, but I don't think his mom is coming along. Word is, she wants him to stay on the West Coast. Hopefully Compton can get her a good job in Lawrence :)

Yeah. According to Selby....Jones is KU bound. I think it's probably 50/50 chance he goes to KU, but why would he waste a visit this late in the process if he didn't have some legitimate interest in going to KU.

Well, I'm thinking there's a good chance he actually ends up at KU now. But to answer your question being a devil's advocate, like someone on Phog said, it's a couple days of free meals and entertainment and being treated like a prince.

Hopefully Selby does come down to Larryville as rumored and convince him to commit to KU.

Yeah, mama Jones wants him to make sure he goes to the school where he will get the most exposure/playing time because it's a business decision. He tweets that he's about do disappoint some people but hopes they still love him (only Washington fans really love him). So now I'm thinking he goes UK.

I wouldn't. With all due respect, it's f'ing Washington (sorry flopnuts lol). Why go to a school like that when he could go to a KU or a UK? If he wants exposure and if he's really that good he'll play at either of those top schools. Not to mention the annual chance at winning a National Title.

Because it's his home and UDub isn't like a shit school or anything. They're actually pretty good and he could be the man that takes them to the promise land. Steph Curry played for Davidson, for example.

But Curry didn't get as much exposure as he would have playing for an elite program on ESPN all the time. I'm all for playing for your home team, but if it's exposure you seek, go for the gold if you're that good.

He did get exposure. He got drafted to the NBA and lit shit up.

Don't get me wrong, I see your point of being on national TV more if you play for a blueblood, just trying to play the devil's advocate here.

Mr. Flopnuts
04-30-2010, 11:58 AM
Taking a team on the verge like Washington would be a HUGE accomplishment, and probably springboard him to lottery status.

It's a totally different situation than playing with Selby and other top notch recruits. It just depends on what he wants. A good chance at a National title and sharing the glory with 2-3 other guys, or being the face of a program and still having the opportunity to win a National title.

It's not like Washington hasn't been going to the sweet 16 quite a bit recently. Jones could be the piece that pushes us over the top. Our recruiting class is already pretty good.

His quote was something like "I got one official left, might as well take it"

Going from Portland all the way to Kansas is pretty out of the way just to take an ultimately meaningless visit.

I agree. Although, someone who apparently knows a couple of players from KU heard from them that Jones really liked the coaches, the facilities and Larryville but got the feeling from him that he was worried about playing time.

Obviously take it for what it's worth, which is not much.

If he goes to UW, I have to hope he fails. Not because he didn't pick KU. In fact, I liked that KU was finally used as a fake. But it's because I think you'll start to see this trend more and more: kids going to programs with no stars so that they can resurrect them or be the absolute star. With that trend, Self will have a harder time landing top recruits. That's not saying he can't field a good team, it's just that the bigger name schools (probably sans any Calipari team) will have a harder time signing top flight recruits.

Actually, it wasn't signed. False report. And to make it even better, Calipari was on the phone with him right after he committed, and it's now being reported he's ****ing undecided again. He may bolt and go to UK yet. :cuss: :banghead:

This is what I am hearing as well.

The rumors seem to vary based on what fan-base you are listening to. KU and UW fans say Cal called to guilt-trip TJones into reconsidering. UK fans say that TJones gave a verbal to UK on Wednesday, but changed his mind at the last second, and he called Cal to apologize, which led to the guilt-trip.

Either way, it sounds like it isn't over for anyone except KU.

I was comfortable with the belief that UK was a distant third.

This should worry every UW fan. If he declares himself undecided again, he might as well get a kuntucky tattoo.

Oh, UW fans are freaking the fuck out. If he ends up renegging, the entire city is going to hate him with a passion. We could've lived with him choosing another school, but to do this, is unforgivable.

No shit... and it just goes to prove what douchebag Coach Cal. really is. He's a complete weasel! I mean leave the kid alone already. This was supposed to be an exciting day in the kids life signing his letter of intent to play college ball, and if it's true (which I don't doubt) what does Cal. do besideds call the kid to pressure him into changing his mind. Dirty tactics if you ask me. I've got no respect for that man.

Maybe Not Cold Feet, But Terrence Jones Cools On UW


No that's not John Calipari on the phone with Terrence Jones. I believe it was KJR-AM, but it's difficult to know because many folks were handing Jones a cellphone for interviews, asking him to pose for pictures and generally pulling him in several directions.

Needless to say, it was a bizarre day. I was going to drive back to Seattle last night and catch the Mariners game or UW Spring Game, but decided to remain in Portland because someone close to Jones said it would be a good idea to stick around today. I assumed that meant another news conference and rumors are flying about a 10 a.m. press conference, but I don't think that's going to happen.

There's no solid news this morning. We might know more later today.

Basically, Jones parents wanted him to hang out Friday with his friends and just be a kid again. They wanted him to take some time away from the recruiting stuff and sleep on his decision.

As for the news conference, I'm not sure what we witnessed Friday. It was exciting. It made for a good sound bite, photo-op and a very entertaining Live Chat.

Otherwise, it was very puzzling because Jones walked out without signing a national letter of intent with Washington.

Unlike his former Jefferson High teammate Terrence Ross, who eagerly signed his NLOI, Jones never signed anything. Maybe it's just an oversight, but I don't think so.

I think Jones is rethinking his decision. Maybe it's a byproduct of waiting so long to make a decision. He said he didn't know he was going to decide until the moment before picking a UW cap among choices that included Kentucky, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon and UCLA.

There's only two schools involved now, Washington and Kentucky.

On the Live Chat, I said I thought Jones was going to UK. It was just a gut feeling I had based on nothing more than intuition. Obviously now I'm not so sure. I think the chances are good he'll stick with his verbal commitment and sign a letter intent with the Huskies.

Still time is on his side. The signing period ends May 19. Conceivably, he could drag this out for another couple of weeks, which is the last thing anyone wants.

He should just sign already then he won't have to worry about shit. Just play with your best friend and close to home and be done with it. What is he even debating? I believe with him next year UW is a bettter team than UK.

According to the local Portland paper here he has only signed financial aid papers to UK, that way if Calipari leaves he can still go somewhere else.

He has been interviewed a few times here on the local sports radio shows and it sounds like he just really wanted to please a bunch of different people and instead of doing what he wanted he was trying to do what others wanted. It sounds like he always wanted to go to the UK but a lot of people were pushing for washington. He also doesn't sound like the brightest bulb but that could just be the nerves of all this pressure. Oh and now he is 95 percent certain that is where he is going, so it isnt set in stone still.
