Jahlil Okafor impressed recently in team USA’s U-19 squad victory over Australia; I have written here before the Okafor would have to lead the team in scoring in order for the US to bring home a gold medal.
USA beats Australia 94-51. Justise Winslow 10 Pts & 10 Rebs, Rasheed Sulaimon 8 Pts, 2 Rebs & 2 Asts, Jahlil Okafor 12 Pts, 3 Rebs & 3 StlsAdvertisement

The US squad also overcame Russia recently and the Americans have not played in a game that was close yet. It is a shame Andrew Wiggins did not attend this year, because it would have been fun to watch Wiggins try his luck against the Americans.
USA U19 defeats Russia 115-47. Rasheed Sulaimon with 11 points and 4 boards, Jahlil Okafor with 15 and 7. Justise Winslow with 10 and 8.

Okafor has not yet made a recruiting decision, but he will be taking most of his visits in the early fall and should make his choice by November. We will definitely keep you posted when he decides though.
