Scout's take: Okafor, Jones pick Duke

In basketball, landing just one special player can change a program. When you get two at that level, that’s pretty special. Not only is Duke bringing in two impact players in No. 1 Jahlil Okafor (Chicago/Whitney Young) and No. 4 Tyus Jones (Apple Valley, Minn./Apple Valley), the Blue Devils are getting two players who already have chemistry on the court, which is a big advantage. Securing the two best players at the most important positions on the floor will likely make Duke the preseason No. 1 next fall.
How will Okafor and Jones fit in at Duke? What should we expect to see?
