Recently read the latest update on top ranked 2014 center Jahlil Okafor, and he is about to bring a hail storm down upon high school basketball. Shout out to Michael O’Brien for the alert, and stay tuned in to Rant Sports Prep fro updates on how Okafor’s visits go. That is just what we do here.

Okafor is a favorite for many of the national player of the year awards, but will have to wait and see him in person before I declare him the best at the moment. He is a package recruiting deal with top ranked point guard Tyus Jones and they will be in competition for many of those awards. Also have yet to see Jones in person, so considering trying to make it to their December game if I can secure tickets. I need to wait to see them play in person before I can decide between the two, but believe they are both the real deal.
They will also almost certainly play college together and will decide something by early November. There are two visits between now and then, but you can bet we will give you the straight truth here at Prep.
Okafor is a young man who has worked hard for this though, and he should enjoy his last year of high school basketball because it goes by too fast.
