Jones hosting Capel and K tonight

He committed to Duke late last Fall, and now De Soto (Tex.) standout Matt Jones will welcome his future coaching staff tonight for an in-home visit.

"I'm looking forward to sitting down with Coach K and Coach Capel," said Matt Jones. "I know that a lot has been happening lately, and it'll be a great chance to talk about it all."

With his decision nearly a year behind him, Jones has been able to avoid the recruiting process, and focus solely on enjoying his senior year and improving his overall game. Still, there are some questions he has for Krzyzewski tonight.

"I mainly want to talk about what it is to be a Duke player and how I will transition. Because I've been committed for so long, there's nothing to really talk about in terms of the decision, just about the future and getting there. I really want to talk about what it's going to be like on campus, and in practice. I want to know how to best prepare myself for that."

Once the in-home visit is done, Jones will start moving towards setting a date for the official visit. A lot will depend on his high school schedule, however.

"I definitely want to get down there for a big game in Cameron for my official. That's one of my goals for the upcoming season. I also want to keep working hard and hopefully make the McDonald's Game and the Jordan Brand game."

And, incase you're left wondering what's on the menu tonight, the future Blue Devil has that covered:

"One thing I do know is that my mom is going to be cooking BBQ, so everyone's going to be eating really great tonight! We're all looking forward to having Coach K and Coach Capel in our home."

Jones is ranked as a five star shooting guard in the class of 2013.
