10:36 AM ET 07.28 | Tyus Jones, the Apple Valley senior point guard prodigy, said he'll make his highly anticipated college commitment in November. It'll be surprising if he doesn't choose Duke. People in the know expect Jones to play two seasons for coach Mike Krzyzewski at Duke, then declare himself eligible for the NBA draft. Krzyzewski will coach the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 when, incidentally, Jones will have completed his sophomore season.

Instead of one and done he will be two and done? While I don't blame young athletes from going after the money it's still a disservice to college programs.
