Whitney Young Center Jahlil Okafor Tweets That He Does Not Have A Leader in Recruiting
Jahlil Okafor recently addressed the rumors that he would be joining the Duke Blue Devils that sprang up after his old AAU coach expressed the thought that the center was leaning that way. You can check out the tweet from the Whitney Young center below.
I don't have a leader. Stop the rumors.

Okafor is going to be hotly contested for as a recruit and he will likely be in consideration for many national player of the year awards at the end of this year. He will also have a chance to lead Whitney Young to a state title now that the pesky Jabari Parker is no longer in the way. Parker and the Simeon Academy Wolverines (IL) eliminated Okafor last year and the young center left the court in tears. Only know this because the game was livestreamed and I was fortunate enough to catch the end of it after showing up at the gym and getting turned away. They really should have held that game in a larger gym, but what are you going to do.
Okafor is a package recruiting deal with top ranked point guard Tyus Jones, and they have said in the past that they want to make a decision by November. In any case we will definitely keep you posted of any updates on their recruitment and stay tuned for a piece on Jones later tonight.
