Tyus Jones to Visit Kentucky This Weekend

Tyus Jones, the top point guard in the Class of 2014, will take an unofficial visit to Kentucky this weekend.

“Yes, leaves Friday,” Zach Goring, Jones’s high school coach at Apple Valley (MN), told SNY.tv.

Kentucky hosts Texas A&M Saturday at 4 p.m.

The news was first reported by KYSportsRadio on Twitter.

Goring said Jones has no other visits scheduled at the moment.

Writing in his USA Today blog in October, Jones said after visiting Duke and North Carolina: “I’ll probably try and get out to Kentucky and Kansas next because I’ve never been to those schools.”

On Saturday, Jones had 18 points, four rebounds and eight assists while leading Apple Valley (8-1) to an 80-70 victory over Robbinsdale Cooper.

2014 Robbinsdale guard Rashad Vaughn had 35 points in that game, with Minnesota coach Tubby Smith, North Carolina coach Roy Williams and Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg all watching, per TwinCities.com.
