Tyus Jones to visit Kentucky soon

Tyus Jones, the top point guard in the 2014 class, says he’s coming to Kentucky soon.

In his latest blog on USA Today’s High School website, Jones says that he’s down to eight schools: Baylor, Duke, North Carolina, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State, Kansas and Kentucky. Jones, who is ranked #1 in ESPN’s 60 for 2014, says that he’s getting ready to set a date for a visit to Lexington:

The next two schools that I’ll be trying to get down to are Kentucky and Kansas.

Those are the two that I haven’t been to yet so I really want to see the schools and experience the fans and everything. We’re working on some dates now, but nothing is set.

Tyus says that Cal, along with Coach K and Tom Izzo, called him on Tuesday after the Champions Classic. With most of Cal’s epic 2013 class expected to enter the draft following their freshman year, it will be more crucial than ever to land a top PG, and as Jordan says, some consider Jones to be the best point guard in the country, regardless of class.

Watch him work:

I dig the pink shoes.

    Ryan Harrow is not ready to lead the team, thus Cal is holding him off the court for now to protect is draft value. #PlayersFirst

    if that’s the #1 point guard in the 2014 class, then that’s one weak ass class.

    What’s his height listed as? In the videos, he looks to be about 6′ max. Cal usually likes to have more size at PG to run the DDMO. We shall see…

    #9: I thought the same thing. He doesn’t look like the bigger, stronger point guards Cal likes to recruit. So we may assume he has a very high b-ball IQ, can SHOOT the lights out, and pass. He doesn’t look like a Wall, Bledsoe, Knight, or Teague. There’s nothing flashy about him. And I do like ball players that aren’t flashy but who get the job done — those who win. Perhaps he’s a winner and makes those around him better.

    Im really hoping Cal is recruiting Emmanuel Mudiay, Hes the 2 or 3 ranked player in the 2014 class who also plays a point guard/ shooting gurad roll. The kid looks like a Kentucky player with his style of play. But if Tyus wants to come you wont see me complaining.

    Coach K has been banking on getting Jones/Okafor for a couple years now. Never offered 2013 PG stud Cat Barber strictly because he wanted Jones to know it’s his Duke team in 2014. But then again, I would NEVER count Cal out for a recruit.

    Emmanuel Mudiay fits Cals system better, plus he’s a bigger pg. The 2014 class will be interesting, especially of Towns reclassifies. Cliff Alexander has us high on his list and some are saying Trey Lyles is a lock. I doubt we would get all three of them but never know I guess. Questions, well D’Angelo Russell want to come back to his home state and play ball? Will Cal offer the best instate talent in the class in Shane Hall? 2014 will be a start over period just like this year so it will be interesting.
