Tyus Jones is the top point guard and player in the 2014 class, and his recruitment will be a hot topic until he makes a decision.
He recently tweeted about an unofficial visit to Kentucky. John Calipari already boasts what is being hailed as one of the best recruiting classes ever this year, and now he is already working on next year’s class.
I recently wrote that Jones should join Tubby Smith and the Minnesota Gophers, and I stand by that. Here’s is my stance on why he shouldn’t go to Kentucky.
Understandably, Jones is probably not considering the North Carolina Tar Heels anymore, because they are loaded at point gaurd and the case against the Wildcats is similar. They already have two five-star guards coming to the school next year in twins, Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison. Jones would just be able to shine on the Gophers and it would be his team. The Gophers are playing well lately and have been in the top-25 for most of the year.
Jones recently watched the Gophers beat Michigan State and had a good time on his visit.
“It was good to see both teams out there, and I was pretty neutral throughout the game, and the Gophers played really well,” Jones told Walters. “It’s definitely something you consider, but you still have to look at more than just who won the game.”
Jones recently broke his school’s scoring record and his possible future college teammate tweeted about it.
S/o to my brother @tyusjones06 on setting the all time scoring record at his high school! And ONLY halfway through his junior year.
