Say what you want about the spectacle of the Tyus Jones signing today -- in tandem with Jahlil Okafor, televised nationally on ESPNU, with hundreds of classmates in a packed Apple Valley gym -- but at least Jones didn't pull the same stunt as Chicago area player Cliff Alexander. In fact, we could never imagine Jones doing something like that.

You can read a few hundred words about how Alexander, a top 5 recruit, handled his business. Or you can watch this quick .gif file from the esteemed SB Nation to see him toying with the hearts of the Illini faithful before picking Kansas.

Seriously? The first time you watch, it might seem kind of funny. But it's really just [redacted] behavior.
