He finished his college career with 1,188 points and 622 rebounds, totals that rank 26th and 11th in Greyhounds history. He is also the second player in Loyola Maryland history to record 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 100 steals, 100 assists and 100 blocked shots in a career. His 125 career blocked shots rank third among Greyhounds players all-time, and his 135 steals are 10th. Last season he played in Germany and averaged 20.9 points and 7.4 rebounds. His sister is former Maryland star and current WNBA standout Brionna Jones. "I love Jarred Jones as a person and player. David and I signed him to the agency in December and then got him a job in Germany. Jarred understood where he was at in his career and went and put up solid stats to get his career back going. This is definitely another great opportunity for him and with a great organization in Lahti. Jones is a versatile 6-7 forward who can play the 4/3/5 positions. His game is special because he is so versatile and more importantly he has a great feel for the game. This will be a real stepping stone for him in his career" said Michael Stinnett (Free Agency Director of Scouting). Jones makes the 13th Free Agency player to sign for the 2018-19 season with several more announcements coming soon.
