07:17 AM ET 07.30 | As much as Minnesota fans would like to see one of their stars stay local, he's a national talent on national radars and likely headed to a program with national drawing power. 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.

They've been a member of that club a while...just not at the top of it like those blue wildrats.

Duke lock only if he can't do 95 mph on the freeway. If he can, he qualifies for UNC.
