Jones is a native of Westerville where she played for Westerville South High School as a guard and was recruited as a three-star recruit, ranked the number 29 guard in the nation by ESPN out of high school. As a senior at Westerville, she led her team to a 21-5 record and became the number 16 ranked women’s high school basketball team in Ohio.
