Tyus Jones recently tweeted his official college basketball recruiting visits and it appears that the Duke Blue Devils are battin cleanup. They will host Jones and top ranked center Jahlil Okafor on October 25th. The two players have said for some time that they are a package deal, but there have always been little hints that it is not totally one hundred percent. The two players will be competing for national player of the yea next season, but do not expect either of them to be jealous of the others’ success.

Blue Devil nation would be in for a real treat, because it is a possibility that Jabari Parker might still be there. The combination of Parker, Okafor, and Jones on the same team screams national championship at me but we will just have to see what happens.
After Jahlil Okafor official visits announced I’m more convinced he and Tyus Jones head to Duke.

Jones has played his cards close to his chest, but also remained confident for some time that the package deal would happen. Does the Blue Devils batting cleanup have anything to do with that? I believe it is a possibility and if we get to Halloween and the deal is done do not be surprised. Rant Sports Prep officially believes this deal is going to go down, and it is not a matter of if but when.
