Tyler Ulis recently committed to play for the Kentucky Wildcats, and that just might reverberate through the college basketball world all the way to the Duke Blue Devils. They are hoping to land the services of Apple Valley point guard Tyus Jones and the addition of fellow point guard Ulis to the Wildcats likely takes the Big Blue out of the running for Jones. The tweet below projects Ulis as a four year player and could definitely see that being the case, but we will just have to wait and see to be sure.

In the meantime though the Blue Devils are hoping that this change in circumstances makes them even more of a lock for the Jones and Jahlil Okafor package recruiting deal. It would be arguably the best package deal in NCAA basketball history, and set the Blue Devils up for contention for the next two seasons.
Seem to be brighter days ahead in Durham where Jabari Parker is just starting to hone his skills for his freshman year. If Parker stays more than a year? Then we could be talking about a dominant March Madness run for the Blue Devils in a couple years. Blue Devil fans will just have to cross their fingers until early November.
