Cujo Rising

The last time we saw 2016 SG Curt Jones Jr., the skilled scorer from Richmond was a sensational freshman who was carving up competition on the east side of Richmond.

Now he's a year older and has transferred to Paul VI in Fairfax, Va -- right outside of Washington, DC -- where he'll be a sophomore wing guard on an absolutely loaded team playing a national schedule.

"This is going to be great for him," said his father, Curt Jones Sr.

Jones is racking up the scholarship offers and interest these days, despite being a mere sophomore. He now holds offers from Virginia, NC State, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Tulane, West Virginia, Richmond and VCU.

Schools such as Maryland, Georgetown, Indiana and North Carolina are also showing increasing interest in the slender 6-3 scorer as well.

"It's been going great," said Jones Sr. of his son's recruitment. "He is getting more offers and a lot of schools are just excited to see him play this season."

UNC is one of the schools that saw him over the summer and they've been in contact a few times since.

"I know that Roy Williams and one of his assistants came out to watch Curt in the summer, in July. Curt played really well in front of them too. He had 23 points and hit a few big three-pointers. He likes North Carolina. They're one of the big programs and he wants to get down and visit when he can. I know he wants to visit North Carolina," he continued.

CB McGrath has been the assistant coach that the Jones camp has been in contact with the most.

On the hardwood, Jones has been compared to a couple of former ACC greats due to his smooth game and ability to put up points. The two names that are brought up most often are Juan Dixon from Maryland and Randolph Childress from Wake Forest.

Paul VI has been invited to participate in the City of Palms event in Fort Myers, Florida this December and Jones will certainly have a lot of eyes on him there.

He will kick off his regular season on December 5th when Paul VI matches up with Good Counsel.
