Tyus Jones is Nominee for EYBL Defensive Player of the Year

Apple Valley point guard Tyus Jones has been impressive on the EYBL circuit, and he is now being rewarded for it. He is one of five nominees for defensive player of the year and it will not surprise me in the least if he wins.

Granted he does not get a lot of blocks, but his steals and ball pressure help his team win far more than they lose and he has been packing gyms all over the country all summer.

Jones will most likely not make a recruiting decision until sometime in the fall and it will most likely be a joint press conference with his good friend Jahlil Okafor. They are a package recruiting deal and talk almost daily.

One thing is for sure, Jones has my vote for defensive player of the year and it is looking like he is in for a truly fantastic senior season of high school basketball.

Stay tuned later today for an update on Okafor and if anything else changes in the recruiting world, you know we got your back here at Rant Sports Prep right? Well if you didn’t before, now you do! Boom.
