Duke Blue Devils Tyus Jones’ Dream is “To Become the Greatest Basketball Player That I Can Be”

Geoff Burke- USA TODAY Sports

Tyus Jones is the future for the Duke Blue Devils at the point guard position, but even more so than that he is a young basketball player poised to have success at the the next level and then beyond.

“My dream is just to become the greatest basketball player that I can be,” Jones said to Duke Blogger. I’m working hard and trying to get better every day, and I feel like I have been doing that.”

Have to agree with Jones there, and the improvement with his jump shot has been quite apparent this season. You can check out the full video below, and Jones’ mother is even featured as well.

Jones committed to the Blue Devils back in November along with the top ranked player in the class according to most outlets, Jahlil Okafor, and the pair will have the Cameron Crazies thinking about a national title next season. Whether they can get one or not will depend upon how things shake out in March, but they certainly will be over flowing with talent and the main issue for the Blue Devils might be doling out the playing time. That is never a bad position to be in as a coaching staff, though, and so you will not be hearing them complain too much.
