Tyus Jones Posts Heartfelt Thank You Note To Duke, Coach K On Instagram

Wednesday morning, Duke guard Tyus Jones became the third Blue Devil freshman to declare for the NBA Draft after helping lead his team to the national championship this past season. Jones, who will be joining teammates Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow, was a fan favorite during his short stay in Durham.

Wednesday afternoon, Jones took to Instagram to pen a heartfelt note to Duke, Coach Mike Krzyzewski, and Blue Devils fans. He also posted a photo of himself hugging Coach K after the title game victory.

Jones is expected to be a first round selection, though he isn't expected to be taken before either Okafor or Winslow. We'll see how his pro career shakes out.
