The former Rice Owl is continuing his basketball career at Gonzaga

Gonzaga fans have seen walk-ons turn into key contributors over the years, with a guy like Mike Hart really jumping out as an example. This season, a very intriguing option at walk-on has joined the program, with Jeremy Jones transferring in from Rice.

Jones is a unique story, as he was actually a two-sport athlete during his time at Rice. Not only did Jones come off the bench for the Rice basketball team, he also was recruited to play QB for the football team. This background obviously makes Jones a much more athletic option than most walk-ons. He is definitely undersized to play PF at this level, but he could be an intriguing name to keep an eye on for the next couple of years.

During his time at Rice, Jones actually started two games as freshman, and chipped in 2.2 points and 2.8 rebounds per game in limited action for the Owls.
