Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor Kick Off Start of Busy Recruiting Period with Baylor Bears Visit
So not all college basketball recruits will make a decision in the next couple months before the early decision deadline, but many will start to make their official visits. Point guard Tyus Jones and center Jahlil Okafor are no different and they made their official visit to the Baylor Bears over the weekend. A host of other visits will follow, but the recruitment of Jones and Okafor will be followed closely. These two could become the best package recruiting deal in NCAA history if they go through on their word. The Kansas Jayhawks get the second change to host the duo, and then the Duke Blue Devils will bat third and last. They are making other official visits without each other, but these are the top three in my mind. If they were taking the others seriously, would they not be making the visits together?
By the way, here was my breakdown of the country's biggest recruiting storylines this weekend. Lots of visitors: http://t.co/w65cRecwKj

Jones and Okafor will both be in consideration for many national player of the year awards in their senior season of high school basketball, and it should be quite a lot of fun to follow. Actually, basketball at all levels will be fantastic next season. College? Pros? High school? It is going to be fun on all fronts, and thanks to this new media generation we live in? Basketball never stops.
