Mookie Jones

I, like most Syracuse fans, have developed a soft spot for Mookie Jones, and have actually been really impressed with how he's handled himself most of this year. He's been active and supportive on the bench, hasn't complained about playing time, and has just generally seemed more team-oriented.

That said, because I have a soft spot for Mookie I also want to see him succeed, and I just can't foresee a scenario in which he gets significant playing time. I love having him here, but I also believe he could go to any number of other schools and contribute immediately.

I don't pretend to know anything about Mookie's personal life, but I assume he still plans on basketball as a career and I can't help but think he would be better served, personally, by taking his talents elsewhere. That said, if he's happy then I'd love to have him around for another two years, but I can't fathom how tough it would be mentally to come to a great D1 basketball program as a relatively highly touted recruit, and never see significant playing time in five years.

What do you want Mookie to do, and what do you think he will do?
