4* '17 F Yves Pons (France) (VOLS and Florida presumed to be final 2)
DraftExpress Profile
NBADraft Net Profile

Star of France's U17 team at the World Championships last summer.

Name has popped up out of nowhere in the last couple days as he was not known to be attempting to play college basketball. Does not have any Rivals/247/ESPN profile etc. but is expected be a 5* type.

Took an OV to Tennessee this week and Florida yesterday for the re-opening of the O Dome. Also took a previous OV to Texas Tech. Reportedly deciding soon between Tennessee and Florida.

quote:

If there was one player that had the… “WOW factor” in FIBA’s U17 Tournament, it was probably Pons. The French prospect was responsible for some of the top highlights of this Tournament. He is an elite athlete, even by NBA standards, with crazy leaping ability and a great body structure for his age. He shot an amazing 76.9% on 2pts and he impressed everybody with his power in finishing at the rim, but at the same time, his shooting selection wasn’t ideal and it was obvious that he depends too much on his dominant (left) hand. He is by far a better athlete than a basketball player at the moment, but the truth is that he showed real promise and he can become an excellent 3 and D player in the future.

No I assume he was just referring to Barnes' inability to land big time guys so far here.

Oh, understood.

I'm sure him seeing the brand new facilities at UF was nice. Hope he lands with the Gators, but good luck to him if he chooses the Vols
