Okafor is the top ranked player in his class according to most outlets; he has not yet made a recruiting decision, but we will definitely keep you posted when he does. He is a package recruiting deal with his good friend Tyus Jones and wherever they go will be an instant title contender.

Okafor has been showing off his passing ability as well, which makes him even more lethal; he gets a lot of double teams so his passing skills tend to come in handy quite a bit.

Okafor will be in the running for many of the national player of the year awards, although he is such a humble young man that he probably does not expect as much attention as he gets.
