The Erie BayHawks released Erie native Joe Jones earlier today and kept former Gannon power forward Kyle Goldcamp.
Jones’ downfall was his lack of strength. At 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, Jones just didn’t match up physically with the bigger guards in camp.
I talked to Erie coach John Treloar today and he simply said Jones, who starred at Edinboro and Cathedral Prep, needs to get in the weight room.
Now Jones doesn’t have to become this big ol’ brut. That would take away his quickness. With those broad shoulders, Jones could put on at least 15 to 20 more pounds.
