Branford Jones Interview
Elkins High School
Missouri City, TX
Long Beach State
Class of 2012
FH: First off, our guys at Future Of Hoops would like to congratulate you on signing with Long Beach State. What about them stood out to you?
BJ: Thank you so much. I loved how much of a family related team they are and academics are first there. They also have a Houston and Dallas kid on the team, so I have somebody to relate to.
FH: LBSU also signed Javion Watson and Deng Deng. Have you had a chance to get to know those guys yet?
FH: What goals do you have set once you start attending LBSU?
FH: With the team losing seniors Casper Ware, Corey Jackson, Sean Starkey, Larry Anderson, Eugene Phelps, Edis Dervisevic, and T.J. Robinson do you feel you’ll be able to come in and be a starter next season or will it take time to adjust?
FH: Do you feel you could help lead Long Beach State to a national title during your time at the school?
FH: What drives you to keep improving as a basketball player? Do you have an inspiration?
FH: What do you think your chances are of playing in the NBA one day?
FH: Were there any other schools you strongly considered?
FH: Who would you most compare your style of play to in either the NCAA or NBA?
FH: Last one. What were some of the major deciding factors in choosing Long Beach State?
FH: That’s all we’ve got. Thanks for doing the interview. Good luck to you and your team the rest of the season.
