From Gary Parrish at CBSSports.com:  “Tyus Jones repeatedly insisted, when I talked to him last month, that he and Jahlil Okafor aren’t leaning any particular way in regard to making a college decision. And that might’ve been true at the time. But Okafor’s AAU coach, on Friday, publicly established Duke as the leader for the supposed package deal.

“I believe there is a great chance that Tyus will go to Duke,” said Mac Irvin Fire coach Mike Irvin, according to the @BlueDevils Twitter account. “If so, Jahlil and Tyus will probably be going to school together.”

So congratulations, Mike Krzyzewski.

You are, at least according to someone close to Okafor, on the verge of securing what could reasonably be labeled as the best package deal in college basketball history.”
