Well, it seems after the Team USA developmental training camp, that most analysts I trust are totally buying in to the Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones package recruiting deal. It might be the best package recruiting deal in NCAA history, but we will have to wait until November to know for sure. Shout out to recruiting analyst Evan Daniels for tweeting the below, and he in particular is “convinced” the package deal is going to go down. That is enough for me and thanks to Daniels for tweeting this below.
I'm convinced that Jahlil Okafor & Tyus Jones will go to same school. With that in mind, Kentucky doesn't seem like a legitimate option.

They are playing each other in December and still considering whether to make that trip or not. It is reportedly being aired on ESPN so at the very least will be watching the broadcast.
Jones and Okafor will be up for many national player of the year awards, and you can bet that will keep you updated on that race here at Rant Sports Prep. Keep an eye out for a piece on Justise Winslow later today, and he could end up making a recruiting decision that shocks a lot of people. He still has a lot of schools on his list so it should be good to keep track of.
In the meantime, we will all await the package recruiting duo’s monumental decision.
