All indications point to Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones attending Duke

The Jahlil Okafor-Tyus Jones-to-Duke train is at fever pitch, thanks to Okafor’s AAU coach, Mike Irvin. Irvin told the Chicago Sun-Times that Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski’s relentless pursuit of the big man may pay dividends. And then came the clincher from Irvin, saying that Duke has a “great chance” to get Jones. And if that’s the case, we’re likely to see Okafor heading to Duke too, given that both players have mentioned that they want to play together collegiately. (Sporting News)
