The buzz on Tyus Jones is starting to build and as his twitter profile reads “the bandwagon is full, but you can run beside it if you like”. The Duke Blue Devil commit is having a nice senior year of high school so far, and it seems to me that he is on the path to a second state title. The point guard seems totally honed in on the task at hand, and though his Apple Valley (MN) squad’s 35 game winning streak was snapped recently, the mere fact they won that many in a row is a testament to Jones’ greatness.
He even got a little love from SportsCenter recently on twitter, and though do not watch the show anymore I’m sure that Jones and his future teammate Jahlil Okafor got some highlights shown on the air as well.
No. 1 recruit Jahlil Okafor and No. 4 Tyus Jones are future Blue Devils, and they're balling out in senior years » http://t.co/hq6HJYnNw8

If you think I’m hating on ESPN by saying that above, that is not true because the shows that actually watch religiously are Around the Horn and Pardon the Interruption. In any case, sure that Jones will be getting a lot of love on all of those shows in the next few years and his development as a player will be a lot of fun to keep track of. Jones and Okafor will make the Blue Devils a sure fire number one ranked team in the preseason and it would be a bit shocking to me if they did not end the season by cutting down the nets. Thanks for reading and two more Prep pieces coming your way today.
