    IN THE LOOP
    Sean Jones hadn’t ever experienced quite as long of a layoff from basketball before. It’s been “a struggle” logistically to get the work he wants in, he said, considering how many of his friends at Gahanna Lincoln haven’t wanted to work out as much due to the coronavirus. Yet, he managed to stay on a somewhat consistent schedule, saying he “had to make it happen.”

    So when he got back onto the court this weekend in Lorain, he had a few things he wanted to showcase.

    “I just want to show I've improved as a leader and improved in the eye test,” Jones told Eleven Warriors. “Stuff coaches notice first about you. I've always been able to get to the cup and shoot, so just working on stuff to make me set apart from other good players.”

    The eye test, as Jones calls it, is especially important. Last year at this time, he was 5-foot-8 and 155 pounds. Now, he says, he’s up to 5-foot-10.5 and 170 pounds.

    “As you can see, I'm not really getting bodied at all,” Jones said. “People just bouncing off of me. So, now I can guard anybody on the court, for real. I have no problem guarding the post for a few seconds. They're not going to move me that much. Then I got way stronger. Way more physical.”

    Jones, an unranked 2022 point guard, already holds more than a dozen scholarship offers, many of which he earned in the aftermath of a standout sophomore season. He’s a known name among mid-major programs, and his skillset has him trending toward more major conference teams. Mississippi State, Xavier, Wichita State and VCU have already offered him, and several national programs – including Ohio State – have kept in close contact with him.

    He said he gets the most calls from Ohio State, Xavier and VCU and the most text messages from Purdue, Virginia and Iowa.

    As of now, Holtmann’s staff hasn’t extended a scholarship offer, though it knows all about Jones given where he's located. The coaches had hoped to get an in-person evaluation of Jones, along with point guards such as Paul McMillan and DJ Moore. But they haven’t been able to do so yet, and thus they haven’t offered a scholarship.

    “(Getting an offer from Ohio State is) not really a subject,” Jones said. “Always talk about building a relationship. They'll call up to tell me, like, if someone posts an offer from there and it's not real. They'll do stuff like that. They just call me to check in and let me know, stuff like that.”

    As a rising junior, Jones' recruitment isn't ending soon.

    “I haven't started thinking about committing yet,” Jones said. “I'm just working on my game, getting better and just going with the flow right now.”
