My thoughts as of now

Jahlil/Tyus: Duke

Cliff Alexander: Michigan State

Trey Lyles: Kentucky

Emmanuel Mudiay: Kentucky

Myles Turner: Kansas

Justise Winslow: Duke

Stanley Johnson: Arizona

Rashad Vaughn: Kansas

Doubt I am right about many of these, though am most confident about Jahlil/Tyus going to Duke. Have heard from a Minnesota based source that Tyus has been a Duke lean for a long time, think Jahlil follows suit despite his fathers claims to the contrary as of current time. Everyone else is just a guess. Think Justise may indeed follow Jahlil and Tyus, Stanley Johnson could easily go to Kentucky (though would not count out Kelly Oubre taking the SF spot) and Trey might hit up Louisville. Think Lyles at Louisville would be a great fit, though he and Karl Towns would be a really interesting front court pairing (not to mention a likely Hoop Summit 4/5 combo for 2014).

Even as a Kentucky fan, I'll

Even as a Kentucky fan, I'll admit that I don't think UK would be a good fit for the Okafor and Jones. I'm expecting them to already have Dakari Johnson, Marcus Lee and Karl Towns in the frontcourt, taking minutes away from Okafor. I am expecting Andrew Harrison to be a one and done but if Mudiay commits to UK before Okafor and Jones choose a school, it should already be out.

I think Tyus Jones goes to

I think Tyus Jones goes to Duke. I know everybody thinks Jones and Okafor are a package deal. I read an article recently that said Okafor was irritated about all the rumors that he would be going to Duke. I think he goes somewhere that will better develop his low post skills and I think that destination will be Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans.

I agree with you. Michigan

I agree with you. Michigan State likes to play halfcourt, grinding basketball. That's his style.

Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones

Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones to Duke. Duke considered the leader. Ohio State considered the one team that could keep the package from actually happening as its been said Okafor prefers Ohio State the most. I think they end up at Duke though.

Cliff Alexander to Kansas. UK and MSU were considered the early leaders but recruiting analysts have said that KU has been the considered the favorite the last month. Will not be officially visiting MSU or UK and will be attending KU's Late Night. I think KU ends up signing him.

Trey Lyles to Kentucky. Louisville and UK appear to be damn near neck and neck. I think UK ends up singing Lyles though.

Emmanuel Mudiay to Kentucky. Damn near UK lock. Can't see him going anywhere else.

Myles Turner to Kansas. Tough choice here. I can't see both Turner and Alexander going to the same school unless Embiid goes pro. KU is considered the leader for Turner right now. Turner seems to be looking to sign late though so things could change should KU get a commitment from Alexander in the fall and Embiid look like he's not going pro.

Justice Winslow to Duke. Arizona or Duke appear neck and neck. Seems to be real close to Jones and Okafor and I think he joins them at Duke.

Stanley Johnson to Kentucky. UK seems to have a slight lead over Arizona. I think UK will be tough to turn down though.

Rashad Vaughn to Kentucky. Seemed like UNC would be the favorite until they signed several top guards. Really tough call here. I can see him going anywhere on his list. Choosing UK though because they're so hard to turn down.

Kelly Oubre to Kansas. Kansas has been considered the favorite for a while. Visiting UK for their midnight madness though. They could be the biggest competition for Kansas.

Everyone seems convinced

Everyone seems convinced Jones and Okafor are going to Duke

I really hope Stanley Johnson goes to Zona but I don't see him passing up on Kentucky

I remember reading that

I remember reading that Okafor was strongly considering Ohio State. This was because Sullinger and him have same style of play and Thad Matta would play to his strengths. I see Jones Going to Duke.
