Class of 2014 recruit, Tyus Jones, says he is still considering the Gophers despite the coaching change. The rising senior at Apple Valley High School is leading the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League with averages of 23.2 points and 6.8 assists per game.

Jones played in Minneapolis over the long-weekend as part of EYBL and dominated the field, leading his AAU Howard Pulley to four victories according to early reports that had not been updated as of the last day of play.

The 6-foot-1 point guard is fielding offers from Baylor, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, Ohio State and UCLA in addition to Minnesota.

Along with teammate and fellow Minnesotan, Reid Travis, the two prep stars lead the Big 3 of the state’s 2014 recruiting class along with Rashad Vaughn.
