Duke Blue Devils Commit Tyus Jones’ Teammate Says PG “Has Taught Me To Always Keep My Head Up”
Apple Valley (MN) has looked like state title favorites in the early season, and much of that has to do with the leadership of Duke Blue Devils commit Tyus Jones. He is the ultimate floor general, and his IQ at the position is already at a remarkably high level.
“Tyus has always taught me, as a downfall, to always keep my head up,” Apple Valley freshman Gary Trent Jr. said to NBA.com for their Jones’ feature. “We have low points in the game, and he tells us to play through it and stick it out. He’ll always tell you to fill the wing, and because of his vision, he’ll find you.”
Jones has a way of picking up his teammates that many young ballers across the country could learn from. He is a truly remarkable story, because he has been starting for Apple Valley since eighth grade.
“I had to get used to it, adjust my game and get some different shots,” Jones said to author Alex Conover about starting in the eighth grade. “They’re 18-year-olds and I was just 13. Halfway through the season, the other teams started throwing their strongest player on me, trying to rough me up. So that was definitely a thing I had to get used to.”
That is all for Prep today, but will also hit you with a bit of fortune cookie wisdom and feel free to stop by tomorrow.
