Jones has earned two previous international call-ups and senior caps with the U.S. Men’s National Team. Most recently, he was selected for international friendlies this past January in California. The outside back made his international debut with a 26-minute performance as a substitute on January 26, 2023 against Serbia. Three days later, Jones suited up for his first international start, a 90-minute performance, in a 0-0 draw against Colombia. The Lansing, Michigan native was also selected by the United States for its January Camp in 2022.
New England selected Jones with the 11th-overall pick in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft. The fifth-year defender owns 116 appearances in his MLS career, including 103 starts, with six goals and 17 assists. This season, Jones has appeared in 16 matches, all starts, with one goal and four assists. Jones, who will celebrate his 26th birthday on the same day the United States opens its Gold Cup quest on June 24, ranks tied for third among MLS defenders in assists (4) this season.
