Reaction from around the country on Friday's huge commitments

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

It was a wild Friday in college basketball, specifically on the recruiting front. Many were saying there was never before a day like this, with so many elite prospects choosing their schools on the same day, and essentially within 30 minutes of each other.

Center Jahlil Okafor and point guard Tyus Jones -- who don't even attend the same high school -- were a package deal. They chose Duke. Cliff Alexander, a big man out of Illinois, bypassed the Illini (notice the hat fake-out above) and went with Kansas. Stanley Johnson, a top-10 player/small forward from California, selected Arizona.

They'll all play next season in college basketball. As the frenzy unfolded, Twitter did its thing with reactions. Some of the commentary that stood out is below.
