Madison Jones has visited UVa and is impressed, but he continues to wait for an offer.

Ravenscroft (Raleigh, N.C.) point guard Madison Jones enjoyed a successful summer, picking up offers from Charlotte, Drake, Seton Hall and Tulsa to go along with the offer he previously had from the University of Richmond. Georgia, ODU, Tennessee and Virginia are expressing serious interest in the 6’1″, 160-pound senior, who spoke with Cavaliers primary recruiter Jason Williford just yesterday.

“Coach Williford was just saying they are really impressed. They just want to come down and watch me during workouts and maybe come to some games,” Jones said. “He said he felt they most likely would offer, but they want to see a little bit more.”

“I like Virginia a lot,” Jones said. “If they offer, I’m not saying I’d commit right then, but I would be really interested. I also like Seton Hall a lot too. I just have to get up there and check it out.”

Jones isn’t sure when he will commit or if/when he will make official visits. Right now, he seems to be taking a wait-and-see approach, perhaps seeing what other opportunities may materialize this fall. Ravenscroft’s workouts begin after Labor Day weekend, and Jones believes college coaches can come after September 9.

Jones is anxious to perform again in front of the Virginia coaches, who attended some of his AAU contests in July.
