Do we really need to be signing any more '12 guys? I know they're eager to get some more 2's and 3's in here, but I think this may be a reach.

I question this as well. We should put a lock on this class and move on.
We should have listened to Colorado fans.
Maybe an indication someone won't qualify?
Jones' Teaneck team is undefeated (16-0) and ranked #4 in New Jersey.
Also, for those of you questioning Jones because the premium services aren't aware of him or talking him up, you need to understand that they don't do a very good job with basketball.
For NJ & NYC Metro, LFBall is one of the most knowledgeable guys on the prep circuit. Here's what he recently had to say about Chris Jones (he did an interview with himself ):
I have to ask you about Chris Jones from Teaneck?
I am going out on a limb on this one. With the right school choice and a patient College Coach, we will see Chris play in the NBA as a 6 ft 6 guard one day. Extremely underrated and a real candidate for the 2nd best HS player in NJ this season.
Jean Prioleau is who I assume is on this one, as his relationship with LFBall goes back to his days when he was a great player at Fordham University in NY and then later, coached there.

Okay, let's say that all our signees make it in and nothing weird happens (ala, Cain Syndrome). That means 5 of the 13 players on the team are in one class -- 38% of the roster. Taking Jones means almost 1/2 of the team is in this class.
The only way this makes an iota of sense is if there is a strong, strong feeling that a couple of the players will leave early for the nba. That's just too big an IF.
UConn is now involved in the recruitment of Chris Jones, a 2012 SG from Teaneck (NJ), after watching him play tonight.No offers yet but the recruitment of 2012 Teaneck (NJ) SG Chris Jones blowing up. Pitt, UConn, Nebraska, Virginia Tech & Colorado involved.
While looking at Neville Fincher for the post I made in the 2013 profile page, I stumbled across this article from Recruit Scoop. Apparently Jones & Fincher are teammates, and have talked about going to college together along with their teammate Joel Hernandez.
Then there is his fellow rising senior, Chris Jones. Jones is the leader of the group and a well-spoken player. A 6-foot-5 shooting guard, who can also be the floor general when needed, he has become one of the top players in the state. As one of the most consistent shooters out there, Jones can really score the ball. He is a pure shooter but can also soar to the rim with his athleticism. Jones’ shot off the dribble is his best feature. At the same time, he must work on his handle in order to make him a complete combo guard. If he plays better on defense, there is no doubt that Jones could be a great shooting guard at the collegiate level because of his athleticism, shot and leadership.
