Jordan Bone is heading into his third season with the Vols. Could he be the best point guard in the SEC next season?
If you caught any Tennessee basketball games last season and you know basketball at all you know that Jordan Bone has potential. He has the potential to be the best guard not only in the SEC but also in the nation.
Bone came to Tennessee out of Nashville in the 2016 recruiting class according to 247Sports. He was a three-star recruit. Another piece of the puzzle of three-stars that Rick Barnes put together to build Tennessee into a powerhouse.
We all know about how the Vols were projected 13th in the SEC in the preseason and ended up finishing as regular season Co-Champs. As you well know, the Vols also made it to the SEC Championship Game and was a few plays away from being SEC Tournament Champs.

Tennessee wouldn’t have been near as good as they were without the team effort from all the players. However, Bone was an essential part of the success. Even though the games that were complete slumps, Bone still helped out the team.
Scoring was very inconsistent for Bone but so was the aggressiveness he played with. There seems to be a correlation between his scoring and aggressive style of play.
Bone made it a point to try to take over the Arkansas and Kentucky games in the SEC Tournament. In an 84-66 win against Arkansas, Bone shot 8-for-11 from the field with 19 points and three assists.
The very next game in the 77-72 SEC Championship Game loss against Kentucky, Bone had 12 points on 4-for-10 shooting.
When Bone is playing his best, he is playing aggressive and taking the ball to the rim. That opens up the shooters like Bowden, Turner, and Schofield.
With another offseason under his belt hopefully Bone will come out a different player next season. If Tennessee wants to make a deep tournament run, then Bone will need to take at least eight shot a game.
If he can play with an aggressive style, he will be one of the best guards in the SEC. And, if he is, Tennessee will be one of the best teams in the country.
