Sure, the National Basketball Association can wait for Apple Valley Eagle point guard Tyus Jones. He still has a year of high school and then at least one year at the NCAA level prior to his jump to the professional ranks. But that hasn't stopped NBA analysts from ranking some of the top high school prospects of the country and speculating where they might land. According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Jones isn't a top 10 talent when it comes to NBA potential - yet. Goodman listed his top prospects in an article this week on ESPN.com, and said Jones is a top point guard, but worries if his game will "translate to the NBA." Jones and friend Jahil Okafor are trying to get recruited as a package deal for next fall's college debut. Pundits think Duke University, under head coach Mike Krzyewski, has the inside track. Jones hasn't completely ruled out new coach Richard Pitino and the University of Minnesota, but most think seeing Tyus in maroon and gold is a long shot at best. One thing's for sure, he will be in gold this winter as the Eagles defend their Class 4A boys' basketball title.
