Kemba Walker recently watched Apple Valley point guard Tyus Jones play a breakout game in the Under Armour Elite 24 game in Brookyln. You could definitely say Walker was impressed, and you should definitely check out the piece on Zagsblogs.com.
“He was very good tonight, all the guys were, they’re all super-advanced,” Walker told SNY.tv after the game. “I enjoyed the game and enjoyed watching him play. Tyus Jones is really good, he has great pace to his game. I enjoyed his game out here tonight.”

Jones has impressed many and some have compared him to Chris Paul. That is high praise and Jones has not quite earned that kind of comparison, but I like his game tremendously. We will all look forward to enjoying Jones’ game in the future, and it should only be a matter of time until we are watching him play college ball.
In the meantime, Jones’ recruitment will be a hotly followed topic as he and Jahlil Okafor make their grand basketball tour. My money is on the Duke Blue Devils, but with Emmanuel Mudiay’s recent decision you never know if John Calipari is lurking in the weeds like the confused raccoon that he is. I’ll give this to him though; he is a great recruiter, and if he can steal Jones from the Blue Devils grasp then Walker won’t be the only one impressed around here.
