Myreon Jones, a 6-3 guard from Birmingham, AL, who prepped at Lincoln Academy in Suwannee, GA, has committed to Penn State and is set to enroll in the fall.

Jones is an interesting story. He is ranked the No. 81 player in the country by 247 (which makes him one of Coach Chambers’ highest-ranked recruits), but somewhat lower by other services. (See Roar Lions Roar for good background.) He committed to Memphis in the spring but was released from that commitment when Memphis whacked Tubby.
Jerry Meyer (@jerrymeyer247) said Memphis’ latest commitment, Myreon Jones, has five-star potential and that if he was re-ranking today, Jones would be in his Top 50.

Meyer was so high on Jones that 247 briefly had him ranked a 5-star prospect.
not a mistake

Jones is an outstanding student, registering a 4-plus GPA at Huffman High in Alabama before transferring to Lincoln Academy.
Intriguing prospect, to say the least.
