Duke Blue Devils Have Prime Opportunity with Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones Upcoming Visit

One thing the Duke Blue Devils have going for them? Andrew Wiggins will not be a Kansas Jayhawk next season.

The conspiracy theorist in me believes that Jabari Parker has told Jahlil Okafor that if the Whitney Young center and top ranked point guard Tyus Jones both commit to Duke, then Parker will stay for a sophomore year.

I have no proof of this, but just know this is something I believe at the moment. Okafor and Parker were on the same AAU team, and they speak quite a bit on the phone. They are probably not as close as Okafor and Jones, but those two guys are like brothers.

Small forward Justice Winslow will be joining the package recruiting deal on their visit to Durham, and we will just have to see if he turns it into a trio. That would certainly make national news waves you can be sure. Winslow might not even start on Duke depending on who stays and goes, so we will have to see if playing time is a factor in the talented forward’s recruitment.

Blue Devil fans better hope they do not swing and miss at the bat this weekend, because it would be a damn shame to blow such a prime opportunity.
