POSTERIZED: UNLV commit Derrick Jones throws one down with force (VIDEO)
After putting together a recruiting class led by Rashard Vaughn that was ranked the fifth best in the country by Rivals.com, UNLV has received commitments from two four-star prospects in the Class of 2015 in guard Jaylen Poyser and forward Derrick Jones. This week Jones and his Archbishop Carroll (Pennsylvania) teammates are playing in the prestigious City of Palms Classic in Florida, and Friday morning they took on a Sierra Canyon (California) team that includes five-star 2017 power forward Cody Riley.
Jones and Riley had a meeting at the summit of sorts during the game, and as you can see in the video above put together by Home Team Sports it was Jones who got the upper hand. The good news for Riley: he and his teammates, who include four-star 2016 point guard Devearl Ramsey, got the 59-55 win.
