Apple Valley (MN) Point Guard Tyus Jones has had some nice folks to his home recently, and the Kentucky Wildcats in particular come to mind with their in home visit happening yesterday. It has long been rumored that Jones is leaning towards the Duke Blue Devils, but the Wildcats might have some sway with Jahlil Okafor so this will be a good one to keep an eye on as we move closer to October. Also, we all know head coah John Calipari’s ability when it comes to recruiting players, so you can never count him out especially in the early fall. He might be the best recruiter in the country, but he seems to be a bit behind in this race unfortunately for Big Blue Nation. Kentucky has not had the best run of it lately losing out on point guard Emmanuel Mudiay, so they are hoping that they can work some magic with Jones here. My gut? They are going to miss out on Jones and possibly land Tyler Ullis, although even that is not guaranteed.

In case you were not aware, Jones is a package recruiting deal with Okafor who also happens to be the top ranked player in the class according to most recruiting outlets. College basketball for the next two seasons? Absolutely wild.
