Tyus Jones sets his official visits

Nation's top point guard will visit Duke jointly with Jahlil Okafor on Oct 25th

The nation's top rated point guard, Tyus Jones has released his list of official visits. The five star prospect will visit Duke on October 25th along with five star center Jahlil Okafor.

Jones released the news on Tuesday afternoon via his personal Twitter account:

"These are the final visits I'm taking," he wrote. "Unofficial to Minnesota today (Aug 13), and officials to Baylor (Aug 30-Sept 1), Kentucky (Sept 27-29), Kansas (Oct 18-20), and Duke (Oct 25-27).

As reported last week, Jones will visit Baylor, Kansas, and Duke with his friend, Jahlil Okafor. Okafor will be visiting Kentucky on Sept. 9 and Arizona on Oct. 11.

Duke has made Jones a priority in the class, forgoing the recruitment of other high major prospects in order to focus solely on the Minnesota standout. Jones has noticed Duke and Coach K's efforts as he told TDD:

"I've observed he's been to a good amount of our games during the AAU season, high school season, he's come and visited a few times and also during the home visit with the staff up here, we had a good home visit with them, it's just small stuff like that that you see that they have made an effort to show that they have made you a priority. "
