Duke Blue Devils commit Tyus Jones has had quite a memorable high school career, and he showed off his blossoming talents in the last week by winning the skills challenge and then leading the McDonald’s All American game in assists. The point guard was able to win a state championship last year, which definitely helped him fill out his resume and it seems like he is ready for the challenge of playing college basketball.
“You know there is a lot of memories from high school,” Jones said to Vavel.com. “Whether it be the high school season in the winter and spending it with your classmates and you get the student sections and stuff like that. Then you go to AAU and traveling across the country and playing in those tournaments. You know there are a lot of memories that I will miss but at the same time its time for the next chapter.”
The next chapter includes much tougher competition, but Jones must realize that. He also knows that he is ready for that next level of competition, and he wants to see if he is worthy to carry the load in a crowded ACC conference. If you thought that this season was fun to watch in college basketball, then just get ready for what comes next.
