Tyus Jones, the top ranked point guard of the 2014 college basketball recruiting class, has been calling for quarterback Matt Cassel to start for the Minnesota Vikings for some time now. It finally happened this Sunday for the first time this season. I know this because I follow the young floor general on twitter and he often makes some pretty good points often to do with Minnesota sports. Case in point is the tweet by the young Apple Valley guard below.
Matt Cassel gonna lead us to victory!

Jones predicts a victory, and victory comes. Don’t you think winning just kind of pervades this kid.
Weren’t ready for that one were ya. Pervades does not make it into much sports blogging lately, which is a shame because it is a great word.
Jones is a package recruiting deal with top ranked center Jahlil Okafor; they should come a decision together by early November so we will all look forward to that. The pair are visiting Durham on October 25th, which will be a huge day for the Duke Blue Devils and their program. If the pair end up with Jabari Parker, then it is pretty much game over.
In the meantime, we will just have to see if Jones can give the Vikings a little bit more twitter luck. Lord knows that they need it this year.
