Tyus Jones, the number four ranked player in the 2014 class according to ESPN, recently committed to the Duke Blue Devils in tandem with package deal recruiting partner Jahlil Okafor who also happens to be the top ranked player in the class according to most outlets.
The excellent piece below by Gary Parrish claims the LeBron James’ decision may have been the root of what caused these two young men to think that teaming up would be a smart thing to do for winning purposes. Check it out if you are intrigued.

Jones will now set his sights on winning a seecond state title in Minnesota, and something tells me that his game has improved even more from last year. If his summer and fall highlights are any indication he has never looked more on point (no pun intended), and we could definitely see him bring home a second chip this season. Will definitely keep you posted on that. The next highlight of the winder will be watching Jones and Okafor matchup in December, in a game which believe will be aired on ESPN.
