This week’s “Fantastic Four” flashback photos feature four former prep stars — Tyus Jones, Tre Jones, Amani Hooker and Tyler Johnson — excelling while they were in high school with an update of what each is up to currently. Check out the pics and captions!
Tyus Jones, shown here representing Apple Valley in the 2013 boys’ basketball state tournament, recently started his fourth NBA season as a 6’2” point guard for the Timberwolves. After leading the Eagles to the 2013 Class 4A title as a junior, he was named Mr. Basketball and selected as a McDonald All-American the following season. He led Duke University to the 2015 NCAA championship as a freshman before being drafted by the T-Wolves.
