We're still a ways from the 2013-14 basketball year, but for top recruits the season never ends.

Myron Medcalf, formerly of the Star Tribune and now ESPN, profiles Tyus Jones, a top three recruit in the nation according to multiple scouting services.

It teamed the best 11 players in the state of the 2014 and 2015 against each other, and did the same with the 2016 and 2017 classes in the first game of the night.
