Since the day he stepped on campus as a sophomore, Jones has been a fixture in center field for TCU. He's started every game in center field for the past three seasons, but he took a massive step forward offensively as a senior, as he went from being an offensive liability to a surprisingly powerful leadoff hitter. Jones has above-average speed and had 59 steals between the last two seasons, but until this year the switch-hitter focused on bunting and a slap-hitting approach. This year Jones has learned to drive the ball, improving his slugging percentage by .200 points. Jones has always had tools, so his newfound gap power combined with his excellent center field defense makes him a useful senior sign.
