Recently saw the tweet below about Jahlil Okafor from Fran Fraschilla and I am not surprised in the least. Okafor might even be the favorite pick so far for number one in the 2015 NBA draft, but it all depends who comes out that year.
Jahlil Okafor, who could be No. 1 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, won't turn 18 until December. He's already 6-11 & 253 pounds. Loves low post!

For instance, what if Jabari Parker stays in school for more than one year as he has said in the past is a possibility. Andrew Wiggins is one and done for sure and college is frankly kind of a waste of time for him. Okafor though offers intriguing possibilities as a big man who can affect the game on defense while also scoring with his back to the basket.

Okafor will be in the running for the player of the year awards next year and you can bet we will keep you updated of any changes here at Rant Sports Prep. Look out for a piece on Julius Randle later tonight and if you have any comments feel free to Rant them below or hit me up on twitter.
