Nevada Golf Signs Jones

Dec. 6, 2012

The Nevada men’s golf team has received a signed National Letter of Intent from Rhyne Jones of Blowing Rock, N.C., head coach Jacob Wilner announced.

Jones is a senior at Christ School in Arden, N.C., where he is a three-time all-conference and two-time all-state selection. He was also a part of a pair of state championship teams in 2010 and 2012. Jones was 13 at this year’s Junior PGA Championship in Fort Wayne, Ind., shooting 73-66-76-73, and was twice an alternate for the U.S. Junior Amateur.

"Rhyne is a very talented young man with a very high golf IQ,” Wilner said. “His work ethic, desire to improve and experience will help will when he joins the Wolf Pack family next fall."

Jones was named to the honor roll at Christ School each of his first six semesters of high school entering this year.
