Okafor, Jones To Make Visits Together To Baylor, Kansas, Duke
Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones are widely expected to choose the same school.
Both players have included Baylor, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State and Ohio State on their lists.
Okafor and Jones will make official visits together to Baylor on Aug. 30, Kansas on Oct. 18 and Duke on Oct. 25. Okafor will visit Kentucky on Sept. 9 and Arizona on Oct. 11 without Jones. Okafor will also make unofficial visits to Illinois, Michigan State and Ohio State.
Okafor would like to make a decision in November, but his father said that is not set in stone.
Duke is rumored to be the frontrunner, which Okafor's father says his unfortunate.
"It's disappointing. It's taking the fun out of the process for the two boys," Okafor's father, Chukwudi Okafor, said by phone. "That's a shame. Let the kids go through the process. I just want them to enjoy it, not the media, not Twitter, not the coaches, not the AAU coaches. Those kids are highly intelligent. They know what to do. Let it play out, and I think the world is in for something special."
