This past week was the start of the college signing period. High school and college sports have blown up as of recent. Back in the day a player would sign their letter of intent and that’s that. Nowadays there are press conferences at the schools, players committing live on ESPN and the whole world knowing where these kids will be taking their talents in the fall. This Friday was no different as many of the top basketball recruits told the world where they will be playing. Two of these commits just so happened to be #1 ranked, Jahlil Okafor and #4 ranked Tyus Jones who both chose Duke University.
Like the Miami Heat Big 3, these two star players talked about playing in college together as they played for Team USA, winning gold medals is Mexico and Lithuania. The team USA affiliation is what raised eyebrows when news of the possible duo ending up at Duke was going around, as Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is the USA Men’s National Team head coach. Okafor kept it simple when he said, “We just wanted the best opportunity to win,”. You can’t be mad at that.
Take a look at what Duke will be expecting next fall down below
