I’ve heard Tyus Jones called a “heavy Duke lean”, and I have to agree. Jones and his good friend Jahlil Okafor will go to the same school, so this is definitely good news for Blue Devil Nation. Jabari Parker might even be there when Jones and Okafor arrive on campus, because Parker has said that he wants to stay in college for a couple years. That would not even really be fair to the other college basketball teams, but it sure would be exciting to watch.
@ShellShockUMD Hate to break it to you, but I have a bad feeling tyus jones and Jahlil Okafor heading to Durham. Best package deal yet

Jones has spoken quite highly of the Duke coaching staff and that is the main reason. Jones and Okafor want to have a staff who will know how to use their abilities on the floor and you can definitely say that about Duke.

Jones has said in the past that he wants to decide by November but that could definitely change in the future as well. It would be quite a surprise if Jones decides before then, but I do believe he is heading to Waco, Texas sometime this summer so stay tuned for that.
