Perry Jones Suspended For Remainder Of Season

Perry Jones III will not play for Baylor in Wednesday's Big 12 Tournament game.

A radio station in Kansas City is reporting that Perry Jones' suspension is related to accepting impermissible benefits, and Jason King of Yahoo says Perry Jones is suspended for the rest of the year by the NCAA.

Jones is widely considered a top-five pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.

On a per 36 minutes basis, Jones averaged nearly 15 points on 54.8% shooting and 7.5 rebounds for Baylor.

Not really much. Just another big time college prospects accepting money. If anything it lets you know 100% he is going to the NBA!

Agree he was going no matter what.


Not a big deal for Perry Jones NBA prospect but for NCAA it is still a big deal. Doesn't matter who you get the benefits from it is still a violation. For Baylor they did nothing wrong but if this happen earlier in the year it would of been a big blow cause they would have loss him.


In the end doesn't matter much though like you said cause Baylor sucks, Perry Jones is going pro anyways, and his AAU coach will probably get repaid after Jones gets his first pay check.

Nothing changes.

Well according to reports all Jones got was a pre paid trip to see a preseason football game and his mom got money to help her make payments for her mortgage of her house.

Not really becoming rich if true.

you have kids that grow up with nothing, and put all their eggs in one basket to have everything. it's easy to sit here and say the kid has poor character for taking money when he's not supposed to but when you've grown up not knowing where your next meal's coming from it's a lot different. how can you blame him for thinking in the now when in the past he's had nothing? i've lived a pretty priveledged life and a fat wad of cash from a college recruiter would still make me think.

more of the blame needs to be placed on schools that wave money in front of these kids and use their broken lives to their advantage. when a kid grows up with nothing, fuckin right he's going to the school that promises him an escalade and tells him they can give him the money to feed his family and provide his sick mom with health care. most of the time these schools could give a shit about what happens to these kids down the road, they're doing it because the teets of their fat egos need to be sucked.

He hasn't been good recently, so this might actually improve his draft position (if he has some good workouts).

Well, he dropped in the mock draft after hearing this news, he's sitting at 8th, he was top 3 or 4 before if I'm not mistaken.

Perry Jones looks like a bust. His rebounding and defensive instincts are AWFUL.
