Culver's Tevian Jones Goes to Illinois


Tevian Jones, a four-star recruit in the 2018 college basketball recruiting class, has committed to play at Illinois next season. The 6'6 small forward out of Culver City, California, announced his decision on Twitter after being pursued by many top schools.

Illinois extended a scholarship offer to Top-100 guard Tevian Jones, national analyst Evan Daniels reports.

The 6-foot-5 Culver City guard ranks No. 98 in the 247 Sports Composite rankings He's considered the 10th-best prospect in the state of California and the 29th-best small forward in the nation. The swingman brings tons of athleticism and upside to the table for Illinois coach Brad Underwood.

Other schools that made offers to Jones include Arizona, California, Nevada, San Diego State and UNLV.

However, Illinois aggressively recruited Jones led by assistant coach Chin Coleman and he made an official visit on March 9. Less than a month later, Jones has committed to play for the Fighting Illini in one of the program's biggest recruiting wins in years.
