Recently saw the tweet below about Jahlil Okafor and you can bet that he will make the US U-19 Squad, because to be honest they need him on the floor.

Okafor will be in the running for many of the national high school player of the year awards next year and he will be competing for many of them against his good friend Tyus Jones. Something tells me Okafor would not begrudge Jones any success, but at the same time Okafor has the heart of a competitor and will be out for blood next year. He has never had a shot at a state championship thanks to that pesky Jabari Parker.

Okafor will be a force for the U-19 squad and a double team guarantee every time he touches the ball in the low post. He was even compared recently to Tim Duncan who is currently playing the finals. Okafor has a lot of work to do to get to that level, but he is well on his way with the way his game has developed in the last couple years.

Stay tuned later tonight for more college basketball recruiting updates and if you have any comments feel free to Rant them below or hit me up on twitter.
