    Three of nation's top-five prospects to announce decisions Friday

    So Friday is shaping up to be a big day, huh?
    Three of the nation's top five high school seniors will announce their college decisions on Friday: Jahlil Okafor (No. 1 in the 247Sports Composite), Cliff Alexander (No. 3) and Tyus Jones (No. 5).
    Alexander had already set his date, but Okafor and Jones were up in the air heading into the early signing period, which begins Wednesday. On Monday, however, both players tweeted their plans.
    Okafor and Jones have both stated many times they plan on going to the same school.Kansas and Duke are the primary ones involved, with Baylor also sitting in the mix. Alexander has Kansas, Illinois, DePaul and Memphis on his final list.

    I have a feeling Duke is going to miss out on these guys. Only because of all the other high profile guys they're pursuing as well. I hope I'm wrong, but I just have a feeling they are a Kansas lean now.

    The word on the trail is that they are picking the winner of tonight's game.

    Duke will be just fine, you better worrt about this season and whether or not your resident weed smoker will be eligible.

    Tizu, Jones and Okafor have been Dukes primart targets all along, really only Justise Winslow after them. What other high profile recruots arw you referring to?

    duke gets jones for sure. okafor is the wildcard. i don't think the package deal is a guarantee, it's too big of a decision for either of them to make that the first priority.

    U have been feeling as well that the package is going to fall apart, from all acounts jones mother is a HUGE Duke lean, momma knows best.

    True. Especially since Okafor is in the house and Kansas has the most and loudest fans of the 4 teams like they did the first two years. They showed Grant Hill was in the house tonight, so hopefully he got a chance to meet him...
