Matt Jones Working on Julius Randle to Duke

Matt Jones has already committed to Duke.

Now he’s working on his Texas Titans teammate Julius Randle to join him in 2013.

“I’d probably tell him, since it’s our last year together playing AAU, ‘J, I know you are going to miss me. But if you come to Duke, you don’t have to, we’ll be right there together,'” Jones told Harrison Sanford of

The 6-foot- 8 Randle still has a long list that also includes Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, Baylor and others. But he admits Duke figures prominently.

“If I don’t go to Duke, I know I’m going to miss that kid man,” added Randle, the No. 1 power forward in the Class of 2013. “At the end, I just have to make the decision that’s best for me.”

He added:  “Duke, pretty much, that’s a great school, great tradition. They have one of the best coaches ever …  There is a high chance I might go to Duke. I’m looking everywhere, I’m wide open.”
