Top Ranked Point Guard Tyus Jones Returns from Duke Blue Devils’ Visit
There was a bit of an uproar last week when point guard Tyus Jones was wearing a Kansas t-shirt after his visit to Lawrence, but any talk on that should wane now. Jones was seen sports a Duke Blue Devils shirt after the visit this weekend to Durham with recruiting package deal partner and top ranked center in the country Jahlil Okafor, so we know where all the t-shirt talk can stick it.
Thanks to Ryan James for the updates on what Jones is sporting at fall league this year, which is always of interest here.
For those keeping track, fresh off his Duke visit, Tyus Jones had the Duke shirt on in warm ups in fall league today.

I predict this will happen quickly and shortly after Halloween and possibly even before we should see a decision. The Blue Devils had an exhibition game for the duo’s benefit where Jabari Parker impressed greatly.
“I just wanted to treat it like every other game but put a little bit more importance in it just because it’s college and it’s Duke,” Parker said to the Fayetteville Observer. “I feel really comfortable out there. My older teammates just help me with my nerves and get me going in the right way and with the positive attitudes that they share with me.”
With a comfortable Parker out there you can expect that this duo will not pass on the opportunity to play with someone of Parker’s ilk. Keep an eye on Rant Sports Prep folks, and all your basketball needs and desires will be fulfilled in a most unsavory manner.
