07:58 AM ET 01.10 | Over the past few years, the legend of Tyus Jones, now considered by many to be the nations's top junior prospect, has grown well beyond the borders of Apple Valley High School in Minnesota. Jones will make his first unofficial visit to the University of Kentucky this weekend. The 6-foot-1 point guard plans to arrive Friday and stick around Saturday to see Kentucky play Texas A&M in Rupp Arena. UK Coach John Calipari has already made the trip to Minnesota twice this season, letting Jones know he is one of the Cats' top priorities in the 2014 class. [Apple Valley head coach Zach Goring] said head coaches from all eight schools on Jones' list have come to see him at least once since the season began. Those schools are UK, Minnesota, Duke, North Carolina, Michigan State, Ohio State, Baylor and Kansas.

He's a junior now, so two more seasons before he attends college? Good fit for tOSU then....Craft will be graduating after next season, and Scott will be a senior. It'd be perfect timing!

Come you Iowa! You would start as a HS junior and never have to worry about distractions like a social scene or pretty ladies!!!

Meant "come to", but "Come you" works as well.

Next year... Maymon will be back. Dude is a stud, he would have been the best forward in the SEC this year.

Tubby is one of the most overrated coaches in the history of the game. Why do you think he is in Minnesota?
