High School Coach Evaluation:
Darius is a great shooter. He has the ability to stretch the floor with his jumper. He works hard at his game to develop all areas. We look for him to give us a spark when he is in the game. – Coach Andrew Lacey, Head Coach - Varina High School
Coach Frank says:
If he’s in the gym, he’s in his range! Darius Jones can fill it up from beyond the arc at an impressively high percentage and has great range. He has a quick release and doesn’t need much time or space to get his shot off. Moves well without the ball and makes excellent cuts, gets open. Darius can also handle and get to the rim, can score the pull up jumper. In fact he has the ability to go on scoring binges as he scores at multiple levels and demonstrates a great deal of athleticism, a nice touch and is able to score with contact. Darius had a number games over the summer where he hit multiple three pointers and had six three pointers on two occasions, one of which was part of a 31 point scoring effort! He can put the ball in the basket! In addition to his scoring exploits Darius is a good passer, looks to find the open teammate when on the drive. Darius plays hard, defends his position. He is another key piece on a perennial state power at Varina High School and will no doubt draw a lot of college interest as the season progresses.
