Top Ranked Point Guard Tyus Jones Says Package Recruiting Deal with Jahlil Okafor “Def Still On”
My main man Jason Jordan over at USA TODAY Sports is coming through in the clutch yet again, and giving us all answers to the questions we want to ask the most. Top ranked Point guard Tyus Jones recently cancelled his Kentucky Wildcats visit, which led some to think that the package recruiting deal with center Jahlil Okafor might be in jeopardy. Jordan had questions so he went to the source. Jones wrote back “we know the plan”.
Asked Tyus Jones to update the status of he & Jahlil Okafor's package deal: "Def still on. Def not worried about rumors. We know the plan."

Definitely love the defs in there as well, which makes me assume it was a texted response. Jordan has been killing it over at USA TODAY and his the player blogs that he moderate are innovative and inspiring frankly. Ben Simmons recently did a new blog which is worth checking out and he will be making some more recruiting decisions down the line as well.
My money is still on the team down in Durham to land the package recruiting deal, but we will know more by November.
They are making their visit there on October 25th, and then they will have Halloween to think things over. It appears the Wildcats are out though, and John Calipari is probably none too pleased about that.
