School: Millwood HS (VA)
AAU: Team Loaded VA
Darrick Jones is a 6-foot-5 prospect that recently attended the Phenom Hoops Virginia Top 80 in Richmond, Virginia and came away being an even bigger name to know with what he showed.
Jones is an impressive athlete that has really been working to transfer his game to being a wing player and it shows; now he can say that he has earned his first Division I offer.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Jones had received an offer from Winthrop, an offer he is happy about and is looking forward to the even more opportunities.
“I’m just really happy that the coaching staff at Winthrop saw something in me which made them offer me,” Jones told Phenom Hoops. “It is really a true blessing because most people don’t get opportunities like that.”
Jones is continued to stay focused on his game, as he could be in for a big summer running with Team Loaded VA this year. He is looking to improve his game overall, his ability to shoot off the dribble, putting the ball on the floor and getting out in transition more. But programs already are recognizing what ability he has.
“They like my athleticism and they also like how I can shoot the ball from the perimeter,” he said.
With Winthrop being his first offer, Jones also mentioned that he has received interest from Hampton, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.
