Tyrique Jones is an athletic, high-motor big man that can get scores and rebounds in the paint.  He may be undersized to play inside, and will need to improve his jump shot and perimeter skills, but he’s been very productive for Xavier this season, and he could be a potential second round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
