Jones signs with Southern Utah

Vol State athletes go on to all sorts of four year athletic programs...here is info on the latest, courtesy of Craig Harris with the Gallatin News Examiner:

Volunteer State Community College sophomore center Lucas Jones recently signed a letter-of-intent to continue his education and playing career at Division I program Southern Utah.

"It's a great little community," pointed out Jones, a product of Murfreesboro's Siegel High School who also considered moving on to Carson-Newman, Central Missouri and Tennessee Tech. "It probably has 35,000 people in it. I went to a game during Thanksgiving (break), and there were still probably 5,000 people there. Coach (Roger) Reid has been at BYU (Brigham Young University) and with the Phoenix Suns. He's a great coach and a good guy."

Jones who stands at 6-foot-9 - began his career at Virginia Military Institute, where he came off the bench before leaving the school after one semester.
This is Jones' first season at VSCC.
