This should not come as any great news to anyone, but top ranked point guard Tyus Jones was looking crisp at team USA’s development camp over the weekend. It looks like Jones is in for a dominant senior season, and I fully expect him to win a couple national player of the year award. Especially if he can keep his grades up, which read in one of his recent USA TODAY Sports blog posts that he is doing that which is wise on his part. Reggie Rankin was kind enough to tweet some of his thoughts about the camp, and even remarked that Jones “passing and decision making was a thing of beauty”. You can check that out below if you like.

Jones is a package recruiting deal with the top ranked 2014 center Jahlil Okafor and you can bet that they will get plenty more attention between now and early November. That is when they should be making their decision, and both of their lists are down to four school with three in common.
It is nice to hear that Jones’ game continues to progress and by his freshman year in college he should be quite an impressive player to watch. College basketball is going to belong to these two guy in year, but we’ve got one more season left y’all.
