"USC transfer Bryce Jones, after two months of mulling his options, gave a commitment to Dave Rice and UNLV on Saturday, May 21, 2011. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard will sit out during the 2011-12 season per NCAA transfer rules, then suit up for the Rebels in 2012-13 as a redshirt sophomore." - Las Vegas Sun
Jones is a big statement in terms of recruiting for UNLV, mainly because he was ranked 97th overall by Rivals when he was coming out of high school, but also because the Rebels were able to beat out the likes of San Diego State and Gonzaga, who were also heavily recruiting Jones.
Another point that the article in the Las Vegas Sun brings up is that he will actually help in terms of future recruiting as well.
"Jones is longtime friends with current Bishop Gorman star Shabazz Muhammad, who is regarded as one of the truly elite recruits in the 2012 senior crop. Along with being pursued by the likes of Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky and every other upper crust program in the country, UNLV is pushing hard and squarely in the hunt.
"I'll be in touch with him," Jones said. "I'll try to get him to come join me."
