    Good news:

    Bad news:

    Potential good news:

    All from this article. CBSSports/MaxPreps has him as the #81 prospect in 2013 right now. Read on one of the sites that Arizona offered him after his freshman year, so I would imagine they have a leg up.

    Also, you can visit his unofficial site. Not sure who's running it, but hopefully someone close to him because otherwise that's kind of creepy.

    Adam had a great article on Jones & two of his teammates - Jarron Hopkins and Maurice Kirby.

    Torren is a very athletic kid who can get up and down the court with the quickness. He finishes strong at the basket and works very hard on both ends of the court. He stocked dropped quite a bit over the summer due to his lack development and skill play. He has to work hard on his ball handling, post moves, wing play, outside shooting and his attitude in order for his recruitement to rise. The reported offers have not been able to be verified but hopefully will come in the future as he is a talented kid with lots of potential.

    Scout update:

    Jones says that Colorado is one of the schools which is recruiting him the hardest.
    “I like the location of CU and the climate,” Jones said. “I talk to coach (Tad) Boyle. He’s cool; he’s a laid back guy.”

    Jones & Hopkins might be at the top of my 2013 wish list right now.

    I'd agree, but I really want a shooter next year. I don't care if he's a 5'11" SG who couldn't guard me, just find someone who can make a living at the 3 point line and stretch a D for 20 minutes. That would make a HUGE difference in the offensive flow.

    Agreed. Despite how good Alec and Cory are, I am missing Levi the most this year.

    I hadn't seen this posted yet. It seems to be a little dated, but has some nice video of both Jones and Hopkins. Jones looks like he has nice touch around the hoop, decent form on the jumper, and a lot of athleticism.

    Jones was kicked off the team by Kim Anderson, but I don't know what he did.
