Saw the news below recently that point guard Tyler Ullis believes the Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor package deal is going to happen. I believe that too, so Ullis is not alone in that boat. Okafor and Jones visited the Baylor Bears together over Labor Day weekend, and their next official visit together is to Lawrence to check out the Kansas Jayhawks and then the Duke Blue Devils bat third and last. No real word has popped out about how the visit to Baylor went, but they both tweeted nice things about the school and fans’ reception. You can read the Ullis tweet as well here.
Count Tyler Ulis among the believers of the Jahlil Okafor-Tyus Jones package deal http://t.co/3chiElXcJ3

Okafor yesterday visited the Kentucky Wildcats, but without Jones so it will be interesting to see if Big Blue Nation can make a push here.
Jahlil Okafor currently on Kentucky's campus. Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker will arrive later today.

Something tells me that Jones is still leaning towards Duke and Okafor is a bit more open but we will only know after everything has shaken out in the next couple months. We are getting into the fall months although the weather in Chicago has been blistering so here is hoping that Okafor is staying cool and also that one day we get to watch him on the same team as Jones.
