So now that Andrew Wiggins has made his decision it is time to turn our attention to the uncommitted recruits out there and see what is cooking. Jahlil Okafor recently had an excellent showing at EYBL, but he also gave some recruiting updates in his USAToday blog. I was also very interested in the tweet below, which is a quote from the blog I believe.
Jahlil Okafor: “I had a really good talk with Coach (John) Calipari about a week ago. Kentucky has been hitting me up a lot lately.”

Okafor and good friend Tyus Jones are reportedly a package deal, so good news for Calipari about Okafor is also good news about Jones. It should be fascination to see how this plays out and I hope the two friends do play together in college. Why not? They will have fun playing together and will launch whatever school they go to into national title contention.
