    Tyus Jones / Jahlil Okafor a package deal?

    According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the two will be a package deal for the 2014 college class:

    Apple Valley's Tyus Jones and top prep center Jahlil Okafor say they want to play college ball together - TwinCities.com

    Anyone know what our status is with Okafor?

    Re: Tyus Jones / Jahlil Okafor a package deal?

    Looks like we have an offer out to Jones but not Okafor, both are 5 stars.

    Jahlil Okafor - Yahoo! Sports

    Tyus Jones - Yahoo! Sports

    I don't see how it could hurt to add 2 players of this caliber if they fit our system.

    EDIT: They are listed as #2 and #5 prospects for 2014 http://rivals.yahoo.com/iowastate/fo...ings/rank-2993

    I heard from about as a good of a source as you can possibly get that Tyus is going to Duke.

    Ya I doubt we are really in line to have a chance at the number 1 rated prospect in the class.

    There isn't one... We offered Jones a while ago just to be in the race beings he is a local prospect, same with everyone else in the region. This is a package deal for another team, likely blue bloods, if it ends up being a package at all.

    Smells like the Kentucky/Duke/UNC blue bloods of the world will be getting a hell of a package in 2014.

    Re: Tyus Jones / Jahlil Okafor a package deal?

    These guys are out of our league at the moment unless we had a good built relationship with them over the last year which I doubt. Would be an amazing combo to land though...

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    We had blue as a color in the past does that count?

    Wow. Whichever school lands this package might as well start clearing off a spot for a national title plaque.

    Queue the Coach Cal conference call. Would not surprise me at all if they are playing in Lexington in a couple years.

    Re: Tyus Jones / Jahlil Okafor a package deal?

    Legit question here, so try not to make too much fun of me. But, is Tyus Jones, in your opinions, a "one-and-done" guy most likely?

    Re: Tyus Jones / Jahlil Okafor a package deal?

    For the simple fact he is the #1 rated recruit, I'd guess he's likely a one-year player.

    One never knows, though.....see Harrison Barnes.
