Tyus Jones Recruiting Update Includes No New News

Minnesota high school basketball prep star and top-ranked guard prospect Tyus Jones told the Star-Tribune that there has not been any significant change in the status of his recruiting. Jones confirmed he has paid a visit to Tubby Smith's program at Minnesota, and that the Gopher coaches have maintained steady contact throughout the summer. Jones has also taken visits to Ohio State, Michigan State, and Baylor, and plans on visiting Duke and North Carolina this fall.

Even with those unofficial visits under his belt, Jones indicated he's nowhere near making a decision: He doesn't have any others planned but said he wanted to do as many as he could before the official period starts (January) so he can pick his allotted five wisely.

He won't say how many will be on the list, but sometime before the high school basketball season starts, Jones plans to start narrowing the cache of interested schools, he said, and go from there.

A potential issue in Jones' recruitment may come from Chicago-based forward Jahlil Okafor. Jones has previously indicated that he and Okafor are planning to play for the same school.
