Tyus Jones Eyeing Tubby Smith's Situation At Minnesota
Tyus Jones, the top rated point guard in the class of 2014, is keeping tabs on the job status of Minnesota coach Tubby Smith.
Smith's current contract ends a year before Jones would be a college freshman.
"I definitely take that into consideration," said Jones. "With me still having a (couple) years left in high school, I definitely look at it if certain coaches will still be there, still have the same job or retire. But I know I can't control it."
Jones is believed to be considering Michigan State and Duke, with Minnesota in third place.
"It's too early to have a favorite or be ready to make a commitment," Jones said. "But it's different this year with teams because I have a better relationship with the coach, since I've been talking to them and know them more personally now than before."
