Good luck finding a bigger storyline for the NCAA’s early signing period, which starts today and runs through Nov. 20, than this: “Where will Whitney Young (Chicago) center Jahlil Okafor and Apple Valley (Apple Valley, Minn.) point guard Tyus Jones suit up in college?”

The duo has maintained throughout the recruiting process that their plan is to team up in college, and come Friday at 4 p.m. (EST) we’ll find out which school will land the country’s top player and the country’s top point guard.

Naturally, opinions abound, but we caught up with a handful of elite players who know Okafor and Jones and had them reveal their pick on which school they think will ultimately win out.

Joel Berry, Lake Highland Prep (Orlando), PG, 2014

College: North Carolina

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Duke. I feel like that’s the best fit for both of them. I think all of the other schools that they have on their list have their pieces that they need already.

Devin Booker, Moss Point (Moss Point, Miss.), SG, 2014

College: Kentucky

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Kansas. I feel like both of them will fit perfectly into the system and their spots will be open. They will be going in with their wingman already established with Kelly (Oubre) and Wiggy (Andrew Wiggins) will be gone.

Montaque Gill-Caesar, Huntington Prep (Huntington, W.Va.), SF, 2015

College: Undecided

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Duke. All I’ve ever heard about those two Duke has been in the convo, and they just look like Duke-type players.

Grayson Allen, Providence (Jacksonville, Fla.), SG, 2014

College: Duke

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Duke! Get to play for the best coach in college basketball on a huge stage in front of the craziest fans. Plus, you get a great education. Best of both worlds!

D’Angelo Russell, Montverde (Montverde, Fla.), SG, 2014

College: Ohio State

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Kansas.

Harry Giles III, Wesleyan Christian Academy (High Point, N.C.), F, 2016

College: Undecided

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Duke. When I was there with them they had a really good vibe with Coach K. I think Duke is the school for them. I’m going to say Duke!

Malik Newman, Callaway (Callaway, Miss.), G, 2015

College: Undecided

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Duke. They fit the system!

Myles Turner, Trinity (Euless, Texas), C, 2014

College: Undecided

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Duke. Tyus and Jahlil want to go where they can be a package deal and Duke needs a post/point guard combo because Grayson (Allen) is the only player signed. Kansas is my second choice for them, but I think Cliff (Alexander) is going there too so that would probably eliminate them because I feel Jahlil would want the individual attention and the chance to shine at his position.

Ivan Rabb, Bishop O’Dowd (Oakland, Calif.), C, 2015

College: Undecided

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Duke. They just seem like they would fit into Coach K’s system. Plus, they are both gold medalists already!

Stanley Johnson, Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.), SF, 2014

College: Undecided

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Kansas. Because they both will start and it’s high level. Plus, Kansas already has Kelly (Oubre).

Kelly Oubre, Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.), SF, 2014

College: Kansas

My prediction is that Tyus and Jahlil will go to: Kansas. We would be lethal and shine together. Lawrence is the place to be!
