Okafor recently won a gold medal at the U-19 world championships for team USA over Serbia and Okafor’s PER during the tournament was truly insane. Okafor and Jones are a package recruiting deal and Okafor recently said he would like to make a decision before his senior season begins. That should definitely happen and it will probably be around November after they have taken their visits and then mulled their options for a bit.
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

That would definitely relieve a lot of media attention on Okafor and he is to be commended for his focus on basketball above all else. He will be in the running for many of the national player of the year awards, which we will keep you posted of here.
The Cliff Alexander & Jahlil Okafor Watch begins tomorrow at the Peach Jam #staytuned
