Tyler Ulis recently committed to the Kentucky Wildcats which may have taken Tyus Jones out of the conversation over there. That should come as a bummer to Wildcat fans who were probably still holding out a little bit more hope for the Jahlil Okafor-Jones package recruiting deal. To cheer y’all up though here are some highlights just came across of Ulis matching up quite well against Jones. Ulis impressed Jones the last time the two battled.
“The whole summer has been fun and I’ve definitely had some big battles” Jones wrote on his USA TODAY Sports blog. “I think my toughest head-to-head matchup was against Tyler Ulis at Peach Jam. He’s an extremely good player and he’s tough to play against because he’s smaller and quicker. He had a great game when I played against him, but that was a fun battle.”
You can check out some of those highlights here and something tells me we have not seen the last of the point guard battles between these two.

Jones has said he wants to make a decision by early November and that should definitely happen. He does not want to be distracted with recruiting during his last season of high school ball, and that is wise beyond the young Apple Valley point guard’s years.
