Apple Valley 14-Year Old Getting College Interest?

Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press has a bit in his column today about a 14-year old from Apple Valley that is already drawing interest for his basketball prowess, particularly from the Golden Gophers.


Tyus Jones, a 6-foot-1 freshman from Apple Valley High School, just returned from a trip to Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he participated in tryouts for the USA Junior National team.


Walters says that while there has been no formal offer yet, the Gophers are “infatuated” with Thomas and will offer him a scholarship at some point.
