The DePaul Blue Demons hosted La Lumiere (IN) power forward Torren Jones on an official visit this past weekend. We spoke with Jones who said he had a good time on the visits.
During his time on campus he said he enjoyed hanging out with the team and working out with them. What stood out about DePaul?
“The city and the people.”
His lead recruiter has been assistant coach Billy Garrett who he has got to know very well throughout the recruiting process. He told us that during the visit he became close with the rest of the staff including Head Coach Oliver Purnell.
After the visit where do the Blue Demons rank in your recruitment?
“Still in my top 5.”
He says the next recruiting activity on his agenda is a trip to Mizzou on October 20th. Jones said he is not sure if he will sign in the fall.
“Don’t know yet. Maybe in the spring.”
The senior power forward ranks as one of the top 100 prospects nationally in 2013.
