My father used to tell me growing up when I would do something that was considerate or thoughtful, “you are a gentleman and a scholar”. That subconsciously made me want to become both things when I grew up one day. Well Tyus Jones, the Duke Blue Devils commit, is a gentleman and a scholar and really looking forward to all of the basketball in his future. Jones tweeted after his visit to St. Cloud, and he gave some nice love to the fans down there.
Much thanks to the Apple Valley (MN) point for tweeting this, and the Cameron Crazies will be bouncing for this guy most of next season.
Sorry to all the ppl waiting after the game. I appreciate the love and support!! St. Cloud has some of the best fans!

Jones is the top ranked point guard in the 2014 college basketball recruiting class according to ESPN, and he was a package recruiting deal with the top player in the class, Jahlil Okafor, before they both committed in November. Twitter lit on fire for a bit when they had the press conference, but it was a special moment for both of those young men who have put a lot of work into it to get where they are. The Blue Devils will definitely be the preseason number one ranked team, and you can be sure to pencil them into a slot of the Champions Classic next season. It is in Indianapolis next season so cannot promise that will make it to that one, but you never know what can happen when you get a little restless. Will hit you with a bit more Rant Sports Prep love later tonight, and if you are good might even poop a few pro basketball articles out as well.
