Apparently Mike Izzo recently watched point guard Tyus Jones and Izzo is probably hoping that he can one day coach the young talent. That is probably a long shot at this point, but we will just have to see.

Jones could be in the running for many of the national player of the year awards and he is a package recruiting deal with his good friend Jahlil Okafor.
Grayson Allen, Tyus Jones, Jahlil Okafor, Kevon Looney – best duke recruiting class ever, definitely top 3

They could end up with Justise Winslow as well, but that likely depends on where Jones and Okafor decide upon. They are taking their visits this fall so we should have a decision sometime after they are finished.
Just not Izzo. Rt"@JustCallmeBHunt: A Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones package deal will be an early Christmas gift for some college coach."

Keep an eye out for a piece later today on what Okafor had to say about a fellow U-19 squad member. For all your college basketball recruiting updates just be sure to stay tuned in to Rant Sports Prep.
