Juco PG Chris Jones picks Cardinals

ESPN.com has confirmed that junior college point guard Chris Jones (Memphis, Tenn./NW Florida State College) verbally committed to Louisville on Monday.

The 5-foot-10 Jones was a member of the ESPN 100 in the Class of 2011 and signed with Tennessee but opted to spend two years at NW Florida State. The highly sought after guard held offers from Oklahoma State, Florida State, Baylor, Kansas and Memphis.

Jones joins a Top 25 recruiting class for head coach Rick Pitino which features ESPN 100 shooting guard Anton Gill (Raleigh, N.C./Hargrave Military) and post-grad point guard Terry Rozier (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Hargrave Military).
