Jones transferring out of Arizona program

Arizona sophomore Lamont "MoMo" Jones is transferring out of the Wildcats program.

Multiple outlets in Arizona reported the news Monday night.

The 6-foot point guard averaged 9.7 points last season and helped the Wildcats reach the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament. The reason behind Jones' decision is unclear, but it's worth noting that Sean Miller is about to enroll a heralded recruiting class headlined by Josiah Turner, a 6-3 point guard many expected to take Jones' starting job next season. Turner is widely considered to be among the top three point guards in the Class of 2011.

Arizona lands elite point guard

Potential McDonald's All-American Josiah Turner committed to Arizona during a visit to campus this weekend, Scout.com recruiting analysts Dave Telep and Evan Daniels reported Sunday.

"I knew that they would be in my top three [on a list of potential college destinations], but when [I] came on this visit it was crazy,” Turner told Scout.com. "I could have [gone anywhere] on the East Coast, but now my family can come to my games. I just really wanted to be a part of the tradition."

MaxPreps.com has Turner ranked 30th in the Class of 2011.

The 6-foot-3 point guard is from Sacramento.

He reportedly chose the Wildcats over UCLA and Kansas.
