Okafor is a package recruiting deal with his good friend Tyus Jones. Jones could not play for Team USA this summer, because of a family healthy situation but he is surely missed by Okafor. They have said they will make a recruiting decision by November, but we will just have to see about that.

Marcus Smart had quite a good game today as well, as ESPN 3 actually broadcast it, which was addressed to me by the wonderful Gracie Blackburn.
Through three, USA U19 leads Canada 84-50. Marcus Smart has 14, Jahlil Okafor with 10 for the US, Xavier Rathan-Mayes has 14 for Canada.
