That is all I can say about the tweet below from Evan Daniels at Fox, who tweeted that the Kansas Jayhawks of all teams are in the lead for top ranked center of the 2014 college basketball recruiting class, Jahlil Okafor. That would be shocking enough on its own, but it appears the Jayhawks are in the lead for Cliff Alexander as well which would be enormous for the program.
The word behind the scene is Kansas currently leads for the top 3 big men (Okafor, Turner & Alexander) in the 2014 class. Think about that.

This is a huge deal, because Okafor is a package recruiting deal with the top ranked point guard in the class Tyus Jones. Jones has long been rumored to be leaning towards the Duke Blue Devils, so it will be interesting to see if a tug of war takes place or if they decide to go to separate teams.
That would be quite a plot twist, but do not expect it to happen here. Think the package deal has been a sure deal for some time now.
Well it seems it is down to either the Jayhawks or the Dukies. Wish we could get Coach K and Bill Self in a boxing ring together and just let them go at it. Self certainly has the size advantage, but K is as crafty as a weasel. Let the games begin.
