AUSTIN (KXAN) — The University of Texas has set up a donation page for sophomore basketball player Andrew Jones. Jones was recently diagnosed with leukemia and donations are to assist the family.

The press release from UT states this is the only family-approved donation page. All donations are reviewed to coincide with NCAA rules.

As of 3 p.m. Friday, the site had raised more than $27,000 in donations from 328 people.
