Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones

On a serious note. If duke don't land these two players there is a good chance that y'all will suck to the high heavens next year with Parker,Hood, and Cook leaving and no top notch players to replace them sets up for the worst season in 30 years for the Devils!
Coach C Nov 14, 4:41 p.m.
And don't forget about paying them for four years.

Love to get both these guys, that being said I am sick of the one and done talent. I really like when K gets a chance to take upper to mid-range talent and can groom them for four years. that's how we won our last title...

^^^ Yup, truth.

idk...i say lets get these boys friday and the rest is gravy
BlueDevils00 Nov 14, 2:37 p.m.
Yeah, I don't really see us as a major contender for Myles Turner (#2, Center) unless Okafor and Alexander pick Kansas. So there's not a ton of high-end talent, but we can't forget about Justise Winslow.
If SF Stanley Johnson picks Arizona on Friday, and Okafor/Jones pick Duke -- this bodes very well for Dukes chances with Winslow. He is close friends with Okafor/Jones and Arizona is seen as Duke's biggest competition. Johnson would step in as an elite SF, which may deter Winslow from picking Arizona.

point is....we dont land them, not much top level talent out there left and we usually have some signed already. we just have Allen so far.
roylovescanada Nov 14, 1:33 p.m.
but also i read that after friday like 90 of the top 100 will be signed.....the record for most at this early in the recruiting season

There really is no way of knowing, obviously, but in the end I just think of Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor as DUKE guys. High on academics, played for Team USA, love great coaching, hard workers, and great ball players. Coach K also has a pretty nice track record with Chicago recruits.

I think we get both. Last week, I would've said Kansas. But the chatter in Chicago on Tuesday was very strong with Okafor to Duke. Also, all of the Minnesota area analysts are confident with saying Jones to Duke. Late crystal ball trends tend to be more accurate, especially when people are changing picks from their original choice instead of just taking a guess. Lastly, having Jabari Parker probably coming back for his Sophomore season helps a lot with Okafor.
I truly feel like we'll get both of them. The stars are aligning
