When top ranked point guard Tyus Jones cancelled his visit to the Kentucky Wildcats, it effectively trimmed his list down to three much to the dismay of Big Blue Nation, The young Apple Valley point guard is also a package recruiting deal with top ranked 2014 center Jahlil Okafor, so naturally the pair draw quite a bit of attention. We could be talking about a potential national championship combination and the teams left are the Baylor Bears, Kansas Jayhawks, and Duke Blue Devils.
The tweet below paints out the dilemna nicely for the three teams involved, and it will be a fierce contest to be sure.
Tyus Jones has cancelled his visit to UK. Only Baylor, Kansas, & Duke will host both package deal Jones & 5 star big man Jahlil Okafor #Duke

My regular readers will know that I think the pair are leaning towards Durham, but we should know for sure by early November if all goes to plan. Jones has blogged on USA TODAY that he wants to make a decision by then in order to better enjoy his senior season. This is quite wise, and here is hoping that all goes well for Jones this year.
The pair have already made their Baylor visit, will make their Jayhawks visit in mid-October, and the Blue Devils visit on October 25th. You all know who my frontrunner is. Let’s get it on.
In the meantime, madness will continue to ensue.
