Top names taking visits this weekend 

October, 25, 2013
Three of the top four players in the ESPN 100 are making official visits this weekend as the recruiting process hits the home stretch and the early signing period approaches.

Jahlil Okafor (Chicago/Whitney Young) and Tyus Jones (Apple Valley, Minn./Apple Valley) are scheduled to be at Duke along with Justise Winslow (Houston/St. John’s). Okafor, the No. 1 overall player in the ESPN 100, and the best low-post scoring threat in high school basketball continues to evaluate programs along with Jones, the best point guard in the class. This dynamic duo wants to play together in college and they are continuing to figure out what program is best for them.

Winslow is a high-level glue guy and arguably the best perimeter defender in the class and will accompany them making this weekend in Durham the biggest recruiting weekend in the country thus far. Okafor and Jones have already officially visited Baylor and Kansas, so if the package deal holds, one of these three programs will sign the best point guard and low-post player in the country. Okafor and Jones could split and Okafor is considering Kentucky while Jones is not and and Jones is looking at hometown Minnesota while Okafor is not considering the Gophers. Winslow has officially been to Florida, UCLA and Arizona and, after the Duke trip, is headed to Standford on Nov 7. Winslow has already unofficially visited Texas A&M as well.
