The Duke Blue Devils got some great news lately when Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor decided to go to college there, and Blue Devil fans will have a lot to cheer about for the next couple of years.

Thanks to the tweet below for the update, and it even lists the EYBL statistics for Okafor, Jones as well as small forward Justise Winslow. Very clutch from D1 Circuit indeed.

Here is a brief excerpt from the piece above about how Jabari Parker is playing so far for the Blue Devils; his numbers have been impressive to say the least.

“The Blue Devils have only experienced two losing seasons since Krzyzewski has coached for the majority of the season (see: ’94-’95), making Duke an appealing place to play for over 30 years now. The winning tradition and education one can obtain with the Duke basketball program is why you see Krzyzewski and assistant coach Jeff Capel go after and succeed at obtaining top-five recruits like Jabari Parker. Parker has been phenomenal in his first year out of Simeon High School, averaging 22.1 points, tied for second amongst all-time Duke freshmen, and 7.8 rebounds per game.”

The Blue Devils have sure been locking out the other ACC teams when it comes to these Midwestern recruits, and if they continue on that path then the wins should keep piling up.

Thanks for reading and be sure to keep an eye out later tonight for even more Rant Sports Prep content.
