Minnesota Gophers Officially Off of PG Tyus Jones Recruiting List

Tyus Jones NCAA Basketball: Michigan State at Minnesota

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Recently saw the tweet below and it appears the Minnesota Gophers are officially out of the Tyus Jones’ sweepstakes. They were never a truly viable option for the young point guard, but it is still a shame that this is now official. Let’s be real though; this was inevitable and it was only a matter of when.

Jones and his good friend and top ranked center Jahlil Okafor are close to a package recruiting deal and wherever they go will be a national title contender. A piece later today will point out that they are the best package recruiting deal in NCAA history. Not too shabby.

There are some quality teams left in the running for Jones and an elite point guard deserved an elite program. We will just have to see what happens here.
