Picayune Boys Basketball: Kobe Jones commits to Oakleaf Prep Academy


We all like a good comeback story, how about Picayune’s Kobe Jones making his commitment with Oakleaf Prep Academy out of Douglasville, Georgia?

The young mamba was second on his team in scoring as a junior at more than 12 points per game before missing his entire senior season with a torn ACL.

Bad timing for the collegiate hopeful shooting guard, but Oakleaf Prep will give Jones a post-graduate opportunity for one year without him losing any eligibility at the next level.
