John Calipari is staying busy recruiting with the 2014 class as he visited top point guard Tyus Jones on Monday.
Adam Zagoria spoke to Jones’ high school coach and there is no question he is at the top of Calipari’s 2014 list.
“He flew up and watched a practice,” Apple Valley coach Zach Goring told SNY.tv.
“This is his third time up now. They’re really interested in him. ESPN has him as the No. 1 kid in the country. I know [Calipari] likes him, that’s for sure.”
With likely one-and-dones Andrew and Aaron Harrison coming in next season, Kentucky will likely be in the market for a point guard come 2014.
The 6-foot Jones recently cut his list to eight schools – Baylor, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State and North Carolina — and Goring said all the schools are equal.
“He hasn’t cut it down from there,” he said. “I would say [Kentucky] is one of eight. Tyus has really kept it pretty close to the vest.”
I think John Calipari is always in the market for a point guard, no matter how many he has, and it definitely sounds like Tyus Jones has a heck of a decision to make.
