Center Jahlil Okafor Posted 40.2 PER During US U-19 Gold Medal Run
Recently saw the tweet below and have to say that my jaw dropped a bit when I saw that Jahlil Okafor dropped a 40.2 PER during the US U-19 gold medal run. USA overcame Serbia yesterday in what was a fun, but ultimately inevitable outcome.
Jahlil Okafor posted a 40.2 PER at U19s. For perspective on why that's crazy, LeBron's NBA PER this year was 31.5

Serbia was the only team to play USA close during the run, and they definitely earned their silver medal.

Okafor also said recently that he wanted to make his recruiting decision before his senior season begins, and we will definitely keep you updated concerning any changes concerning that. Okafor has said in the past that he is a package recruiting deal with his good friend Tyus Jones and wherever they go will become an instant national title contender.
