Justin Jones, lhp

School: Kellam HS. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Virginia Beach, Va.
B-T: L-L Ht.: 6-4 Wt.: 200 Birthdate: 9/25/84
College Commitment: Tennessee.
Scouting Report: Jones didn't always pitch well for the scouting directors and crosscheckers who flocked to Virginia Beach to see him and Upton this spring. Nonetheless, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound lefthander elevated his stock from last fall and could go as high as the second round. He's all about projection. Once his delivery is cleaned up and he gets stronger, his velocity should jump consistently to 92-94 mph. It now ranges from 86-91. He has the makings of a quality breaking ball but needs to add a changeup. Jones has committed to Tennessee but should sign if he's selected in the first five rounds.
