Okafor tweeted his final eight schools recently. The list consists of Arizona, Baylor, Duke, Illinois, Kentucky, Kansas, Michigan State and Ohio State.

Okafor is reportedly a package recruiting deal with Tyus Jones; they are quite close and have been friends since childhood. So you can expect we will be keeping a close watch on any news concerning either of the young talents.

Okafor has been nursing a high ankle sprain lately, but he should be totally healthy by the start of his senior season so Whitney Young fans out there need not worry. You will have your star center back for the first game of the year.

Okafor will try to lead Whitney Young to a state championship next season now that the pesky Jabari Parker has graduated, so of course Okafor’s health will be a closely watched topic as well.

Here is hoping that Okafor is fully healthy quite soon, and if there are any updates on his recruitment or health, then you can bet we will keep you posted of it here at Rant Sports Prep.
