Tyus Jones and Jahil Okafor plan on attending same college

According to Tyus Jones' own personal blog, he and Jahil Okafor plan on playing together at college for the 2014-15 season.

Jones, who is rated #2, and Okafor, who is rated #1 according to ESPN, have only six schools in common with confirmed offers.

Baylor, Duke, Kansas, KENTUCKY, Michigan State, and Ohio State are the only schools in common on their recruitment lists, according to ESPN.

Tyus Jones was largely thought to stay in-state at Minnesota, especially since Richard Pitino has taken over the Golden Gophers program. The Gophers are also actively recruiting fellow Minnesotan Rashad Vaughn, who is ranked #9 overall in the nation. If the Gophers could land both Jones and Vaughn (as well as Minnesotan Reid Travis, who is #40), the Gophers would definitely be a force to be reckoned with.

Now, Jones is saying he plans on playing college ball with Jahil Okafor. Since Okafor does not have a scholarship offer from Minnesota (as of yet), it would seem the Gophers are off the list for Tyus Jones.

If Kentucky could land both Jones and Okafor, it would be a huge win for John Calipari, especially since his incoming stellar freshman class are all considered to be one-and-done. If Jones and Okafor become Wildcats, along with Karl Towns, it would give UK 3 of the top 5 prospects for the 2014-2015 season, hopefully eliminating the power vacuum that would be left by any players leaving for the NBA.

There's still a long way to go for these recruits, but if Minnesota is off the table for Jones, Kentucky looks all that more promising.
