Center Jahlil Okafor and Point Guard Tyus Jones Visiting Baylor Bears Today

Jahlil Okafor

It has finally arrived. Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones commenced their first official visit today, and the circus should only get bigger from here. They are currently in Waco, Texas and twitter updates about their visit will flood out in the next 48 hours. Okafor has apparently built up a pretty solid relationship with the coaching staff, so this will be an interesting dark horse candidate to keep an eye on. They are making this visit together, so it makes you wonder if that is a coincidence or if that makes them more of a favorite. It was said in the press that it was a scheduling issue, but then again I don’t believe every thing that I read.

Anyways Okafor and Jones are always newsworthy for basketball fans. This could be the best package recruiting deal in NCAA basketball history. And even if you do not care about that, both players will have an impact at the pro level. They are both such stand up guys, that it would not surprise me to see them both contribute to many charities as well. This will definitely be an interesting situation to keep an eye on and if there are any developments over the weekend, you know where to check in.
