Apparently Jahlil Okafor and Team USA brought some noise today and I have written here in the past that Okafor will lead the team in scoring. It will be interesting to see what happens the rest of the way, but we will keep you posted here.
Neither Justise Winslow nor Jahlil Okafor have missed a shot so far. USA's up 23-5 early on Ivory Coast http://t.co/ZKo2DU7AonAdvertisement

Okafor will be a beast for the U-19 squad and he seems to relish international play. He will be looked upon as a leader for the team down the road despite his young age; Okafor will be a double team threat every time he touches the ball and his passing ability will come in mighty handy. That is a likely guarantee for you.

Okafor will be in the running for many of the national player of the year awards and we will keep you posted of any updates here at Rant Sports Prep. If you have any comments, feel free to Rant them below or hit me up on twitter. Keep an eye out later for a piece on Justise Winslow who will be a special player down the line.
