ESPN Insider Article on the 25 best HS players in the nation regardless of class. They aren't in any ranked order, but Tyus is one of the 25.
"I didn't come here to be dragged into the graveyard. I came here to win, to win championships." - MD
also here is a video from recently where he drops 45
That vid is very impressive. I would love to see him go green but I feel like he will be a Blue Devil unfortunately
It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van.
It would be a shame for sure. Seems like a good kid. That being said we are looking at Lyle which is either the #2 or #3 PG I believe. It's really sad Duke can just come in to the Midwest and get who they want. ( If he does go to them)
Four national titles will do that
He's going to be in EL on Saturday.
Izzo is going to stop and see him tomorrow while in Minneapolis as well. Two contacts with the same recruit in one week. I would say that confirms him as a top priority for us.
Yeah, I think we are going to be looking at a few #1 recruiting classes in a row coming up in the next few years. It seems like Izzo is recruiting harder than ever before.
In terms of average talent (or stars, whatever), maybe so. But I don't think we'll be getting a "#1 recruiting class". You have to sign like 5 guys to do that and right now the team is too stable to sign that many people.
Well, what I meant is getting a considerable amount of 5 stars over the course of the next few seasons. More than the couple we get every few years previously.
But still, you're telling me if Parker and Young and maybe Jackson commit, that that won't be considered a possible #1 recruiting class?
And in 14 State has a legit shot () at getting commitments from Jones, Harris, Alexander, Okafor, and Lyle. Yeah, that's a number 1 class.

I wonder how much the big ten network is having an impact on recruiting in the Midwest. Kids like this have probably seen a ton of b1g basketball games in the past several years. It has to have an impact.
At the game tonight behind the Gopher bench. Is he using Minnesota for a free game the same way Shallman used us?

Well at least he knows which team will get him in the tournament now between the two of us....
Let's hope he makes the right decision. We could use a guy like him - he seems like a great basketball player, and Izzo could help him reach his very best potential.
Go Green. Go White.
Five five-star players. 2014 will be the year of the green five. We will likely lose 3-5 players from the previous team and these boys can step right into a veteren squad.

Looks like '14 PG Tyus Jones from Apple Valley, Minn. is sitting in front of future Spartan Matt Costello at the game tonight.

Chillin at Brody today.
Really??? With who?
It looks like Michigan State and Duke lead the early recruiting sweepstakes for Apple Valley sophomore point guard Tyus Jones, with Minnesota in third place. Jones made an unofficial visit to East Lansing the other day, and Duke is said to be willing to bypass the signing of any other point guards if Jones will commit.
When the St. Louis Rams decided to trade the No. 2 overall pick in Aprilt have much leverage left to trade down for more picks.
Tyus's team lost in the Section Finals to Eastview 57-53. Jones finished with 20 points and led a comeback from 12 down in the second half, but missed a game tying layup with under 10 seconds left.

Not sure anybody noticed but made quick change on new 2014 hot board's Tyus Jones profile to show Michigan State as a leader
Well, that is fantastic.
1) if he is really serious about MSU, how much love do we give to Demetrius Jackson? He might not be too keen on us taking another PG the year before him.
2) I think the Austin Rivers bouncing early helps us. If he stayed even two years, Duke might have been able to hold off on recruiting another big name PG in next year's class to entice Tyus. I don't think they have that luxury anymore and we have options at PG that don't seem to be going anywhere for the immediate future.
I'm not even clear why we are taking a run at Demetrius Jackson. When he comes in Appling will be a Senior, Trice a Junior, and Valentine a Sophomore. 2014 would seem to make more sense to pick up a point guard.
In the biz, we call that a package deal.
American Pickers...A bundle deal
We gotta break the ice with Jones and then bundle, bundle, bundle.
