Mac Irvin Fire Center Jahlil Okafor Dropped a Double-Double Today
Jahlil Okafor has kept pretty busy this summer and he kept it up today. He scored 13 points to go along with 14 rebounds with his Mac Irvin Fire team and he will continue to impress scouts and coaches throughout the summer.

Okafor won a gold medal recently at the FIBA U-19 World Championships and his PER during the tournament was off the charts good. He is a package recruiting deal with his good friend and point guard Tyus Jones, although they recently came down to 90 percent on that probability. Just something to keep an eye on.
Tyus Jones 90% chance he will verbal with Jahlil Okafor to the same school and a Fall decision is likely.

Okafor is one of the best big man prospects to come along in some time and wherever he goes he will be thinking national championship when he gets to college. Having Jones by his side certainly does not hurt.
@WernerESPNCU Just waiting for both Cliff Alexander and Jahlil Okafor to commit because somebody on a message board said they would.

Check out a piece later on Karl Towns Jr. and you might be surprised with what might happen to him and Okafor at the next level.
