Basketball: Trojans snag point guard

New USC coach Kevin O’Neill got a commitment this weekend from Maurice Jones, a point guard from Arthur Hill HS in Saginaw, Mich., according to a report on scout.com.  Jones is just 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds, but averaged 28 points and 13 assists as a junior last season.

Jones, the Trojans’ fifth recruit in the class of 2010, picked USC over Baylor, South Fliorida and St. Bonaventure.
