The Whitney Young Dolphins have a wealth of talent on their team, and it all starts with top ranked player in the 2014 college basketball recruiting class, Jahlil Okafor.

He draws a double team on every play, so you can be sure that it opens up shots for his teammates. Recently played with a simulated version of Okafor on NBA 2k14, and good lord if he is that good then basketball is in for a treat.

It is hard to know sometimes how these young talents will handle adversity, but Okafor has gone through quite a bit in his life and believe he is in for incredible things. A few national player of the year awards are definitely going to happen barring injury of course. If he keeps his grades up then truly great things can happen, so we will see how that works out for the young Chicago talent.

He lost out on a state title last year though, so you can bet that it will be one of his top goals especially with small forward Jabari Parker finally out of high school.

It was a pretty tough task going for a state title in Illinois the last four year, but a lane has opened up and it would not surprise me to see Okafor fill it.
