Jones began focusing on rebounding at a young age growing up in Memphis, Tennessee. He tore his ACL as a junior in high school and this limited his college options. Jones ended up at Hill College and averaged 11.7 points per game over two seasons. He broke the NJCAA tournament rebounding record with 72 rebounds in five games. He committed to play at New Mexico State.
He was named the 2017–18 WAC Player of the Year.
As a senior, Jones became the first player since 1997 to record 20+ rebounds in three straight games. He averaged 11.0 points, 13.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game in his senior year. He was named WAC Tournament Most Valuable Player since he averaged 12.3 points and 18.3 rebounds per game over three tournament games. Jones set a WAC single-season record with 450 rebounds and was named WAC Player of the Year. He was also named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 6 first team and to the US Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) All-District VIII Team.
