From ESPN Hoopgurlz:

Call this first-ever spring tweaking of the 2012 class rankings the "Jonquel Adjustment" because it was the 6-foot-3 Jones' season at Riverdale Baptist (Upper Marlboro, Md.) that opened our eyes to the necessity of making changes that reflect a new reality..

Jonquel Jones (Clemson bball commit) to No. 17 from No. 36: First off, Jones, who originally is from the Bahamas, continues to grow. She is at least 6-3, which, combined with her wingspan, makes her even more of a force inside the paint, particularly on defense and around the glass. However, not only did Jones retain what already were fairly formidable perimeter skills, she expanded them, at an off-the-charts rate. It's almost unheard of that a high school player makes such a dramatic improvement in skills merely between the summer and the start of the high school season. That growth more clearly defines intangible qualities in Jones, such as motivation and coachability. It also touched off in her a growth in confidence and leadership abilities.
