Ohio State Buckeyes Head Coach Thad Matta in Attendance at Jahlil Okafor’s Game

Apparently Thad Matta is trying to make a move on Jahlil Okafor according to the tweet. It is not hard to see why Matta likes the young center and it does not hurt that Okafor has showed interest in the past. It probably does not hurt either that Okafor is a package recruiting deal with the top ranked point guard in the country Tyus Jones.

It would be a double whammy move to land even one of these two, because the other will most likely follow. You can tell they have fallen in love with the idea of going to college together and would probably do it even if basketball wasn’t involved.

It will not be official until they are both signed, but it seems to be a surety at this point.
