Duke Blue Devils Commit Tyus Jones Says “You Can’t Take a Day Off” Paying on Nike Circuit

Tyus Jones High School Basketball: Nike Global Challenge

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Duke Blue Devils commit Tyus Jones recently helped Apple Valley to a huge marquee win, and they appear to be the favorite to take home the state title in Minnesota. Read the excellent piece below by D1Circuit, where they sit down with Jones and discuss his views on the game.

If you didn’t get a chance to check it out, then here is a brief excerpt from it that highlighted Jones’ approach to basketball all year.

“Playing on the Nike Circuit,” Jones said to D1Circuit. “It’s the best competition that there is out there. It’s the top talent across the country. Really, every game in the EYBL you have to bring your “A” game. You can’t take a day off, you’ll get exposed. The people who have been there like yourself and have seen the tournament really know that and understand it. Playing in that [EYBL] for three years, it just really pushes me to keep working hard and stay focused and locked in for every game I play.”

It clearly shows on the court, and cannot wait to watch this young man at the college level.
