Tyus Jones Still Considering Minnesota Gophers Even After Coaching Change

Rant Sports- Dave Daniels

Recently read the interview piece with top rated 2014 point guard Tyus Jones below in the Star Tribune and wanted to share it.

The thing that surprised me the most was the Jones is still considering the Minnesota Gophers despite their coaching change from Tubby Smith to Richard Pitino. Jones had a good relationship with Smith, but Pitino seems to have picked the momentum right up.

“He talked to me the same night he got the job” Jones told the Star Tribune. “And I’ve just been talking to him every so often, just trying to build a relationship with him. It’s just a fresh start – it’s a little later than other schools, but I’m still considering them and just building a relationship and going from there. Obviously, you have no shortage of attention around here – but to have him call you the night he got the job, that’s got to feel pretty good that he’s making you a clear priority.”

Jones is expecting to make his recruiting decision in the fall, sometime before his senior season at Apple Valley begins. We will definitely keep you posted when there are any updates on his recruitment.
