- Paul Biancardi, Basketball Recruiting
Here are a few things to pay attention to regarding the Horizon League as the NCAA basketball season nears and signing day is around the corner:
Best incoming player
SF Roosevelt Jones at Butler
He is a stereotypical Bulldog who will continue coach Brad Stevens' brand of basketball. Jones plays with toughness on both ends of the floor and makes a difference by doing all the little things. He will be one the glue guys of the program because a player with his versatility can grab a game-winning defensive rebound, hit big free throws or make a play in crunch time. Jones has a college-ready body and he simply power drives through opposing perimeter players deep into the lane, where he uses his strength to score through contact. Jones is also an excellent passer when he draws a second defender, and he gets to the line often.
