Tre Jones is carving his own path – just like his brother Tyus did – at Apple Valley High School. The point guard is having a phenomenal season in his junior year for the Eagles, averaging over 20 points per game.

According to ESPN, he's a four-star recruit and he's already received offers from the following schools:

  • Arizona
  • Baylor
  • Duke
  • Memphis
  • Minnesota
  • Texas Tech
  • UCLA

He's ranked as the second-highest recruit among prep basketball players in the state for the 2018 class and he's just outside of the top ten in terms of point guards nationally.

His older brother was a five-star recruit, helping the Duke Blue Devils to a national championship in his freshman season. Tyus opted for the NBA Draft after that season and wound up being a first-round pick by the Timberwolves.

His former teammate Gary Trent Jr. – a five-star recruit who transfered from Apple Valley, to a prep school in California – committed to Duke last November.

It's unclear when he'll make his decision but with a list of schools like that, it's definitely not an easy decision to make.
