6-foot-10 center Jahlil Okafor is the top ranked player in the 2014 college basketball recruiting class, and he only has one more official recruiting visit left. The Duke Blue Devils better be feeling lucky, because it looks like the Whitney Young center is definitely excited about the visit, which is coming up this weekend.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the campus, the general atmosphere, talking to the players, talking to the coaches, getting a feel for it,” Okafor told SNY.tv.

Okafor is a package recruiting deal with Tyus Jones, the top ranked point guard in the class, so you can bet that there will be a lot of attention wherever they go. My money still stands on Tobacco Road, but we will have to see what kind of words we hear after the weekend. The Blue Devils recently released a video where Jabari Parker and others are singing “Lean on Me” with kids at a hospital. It is very adorable, and highly recommend that you check it out. Was published earlier today on Prep Sports so it should be available on one of the links or pictures that are on this page.
Jones and Okafor have some heavy thinking to do in the next week, but once they decide it will be like a pillar has been lifted off their shoulders.
