Kannapolis guard commits to Virginia

Former A.L. Brown basketball star Teven Jones committed to the University of Virginia Wednesday, ESPN's Dave Telep reports.

Jones, who averaged 21 points per game for the Wonders as a senior last season, is attending prep school at Fishburne Military Academy, just west of Charlottesville, Va. He is the fourth pledge of a 2012 Cavalier class that some analysts rank among the nation’s top 15. The point guard will join center Mike Tobey as well as forwards Evan Nolte and Justin Anderson at Virginia next season.

"They see me fitting in there as a point guard," Jones told "Their point guard is going to be a senior next year. With their recruiting class, they feel like I'm a steal because I was underrated a lot."

Jones was also an All-South Piedmont Conference wide receiver for the A.L. Brown football team.
