Duke Blue Devils Commit Tyus Jones Should Help US U-18 Squad to a Gold Medal
Tyus Jones recently finished off one the best high school basketball careers in Minnesota’s history, and his EYBL career was one of the most dominant statistically as well. Much thanks to D1Circuit for the Jones’ shootout below.

Jones is joining the Duke Blue Devils next season, and he should have a chance to build some chemistry this summer with Justise Winslow on the US U-18 squad. I would definitely expect those two commits to play a key role in another gold medal run for the Americans.
The Blue Devils have the best college basketball recruiting class in the country coming to town in the fall, and although they are losing Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood, I would still expect them to be the preseason number one next season.
Jones impressed me with the flow of his game during his senior season, and it would not surprise me to see him make first team All freshman. Jahlil Okafor will probably be on first team as well, but I would not expect the center to stay beyond his freshman season. The former Whitney Young (IL) center will most likely have a shot at being in the top five of the 2015 NBA draft, and that is an opportunity that will be pretty tough to pass up on.
All for Prep today, but be sure to check out the slideshow on our football page about the 10 biggest winners from this weekend’s draft.
