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.
Thad Matta just finished watching Jahlil Okafor. Didnt see any other head coaches of significance n his recruitment.

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.
They will no doubt stick around to watch Myles Turner matchup with Jahlil Okafor next. @ASlater247 with coverage.
