Whitney Young Center Jahlil Okafor Impressing Billy Donovan at US U-19 Training Camp
Recently saw the alley oop below by Jahlil Okafor to Aaron Gordon, and have to say I was impressed by Okafor’s passing ability. We all already knew Gordon could dunk the ball, but the touch on that pass was truly impressive.

Okafor has been impressing the U-19 coaching staff and Billy Donovan in particular; Donovan is probably a little bummed out not to be coaching Okafor is college, but Donovan has the joy of coaching him now in what will likely lead to a Gold medal.

We will definitely keep you posted of Okafor’s progress here at Rant Sports Prep and something tells me that this squad is going to come home with a gold medal. There is really no one under nineteen years old who can guard Okafor and he will be double teamed most times that he touches the ball; that is the reality of the situation and so his shooters and other post guys are going to have open opportunities as a result.
Stay tuned for more college basketball recruiting updates later on today and if you have any comments feel free to Rant them below or hit me up on twitter.
