Jones being all you need to secure Louisiana couldn't be further from the truth. Will he be an asset? Yes. But to suggest that Jones alone will lock down Louisiana is ridiculous especially considering the important role assistants play in the recruiting process.
We need to get off this business about locking down Louisiana. That stuff is useful in football, and in baseball to a lesser extent. But while football and baseball players predominantly come from middle-class backgrounds and have strong support systems growing up - and it tends to be a nice draw for them to stay close to home so the family can see them play - in basketball you're recruiting a lot more kids from more underprivileged backgrounds wherein the draw is to get the hell away from the crappy element in the neighborhoods they grew up in.
Certainly the middle-class kids in the state - Malik Morgan being a perfect example - should be a priority. But if you think you're going to be able to lock the state down by building your team off public-school kids from the 'hood in Baton Rouge and New Orleans you're going to be disappointed. You might find the reception a lot friendlier recruiting the same type kids in Dallas, Houston, Memphis and Atlanta.
