Cliff Alexander may have his sights set on a state championship this season, but you can bet that Jahlil Okafor might have something to say about that. One thing seems to be pretty sure, Alexander seems to want to stay in state for college, and this should be an interesting situation to keep an eye on. The two players could go head to head a couple times this yea, but we will just have to see who comes out on top.
Thanks to the tweet below for the thought.

Have not heard yet whether he has trimmed his list yet, but it should be an interesting thing to keep an eye on. Jeff Goodman seems to think the Illini have the inside track, and if that is so then John Groce will have done something truly miraculous. Their head coach is really making things happen, and it has been impressing me quite a bit.

That would be the best recruit they have landed probably since Deron Williams, and could even put them back into the national title picture if things shake out the right way. Hopefully will catch one of Alexander’s games this year, and if not then I’ll be sure to catch him play in college. Be sure to stay tuned in to my coverage of the Champion’s Classic doubleheader tomorrow night. It should be a fantastic night of basketball, and will be posting photos and tweets; the next day will hit you all up with some videos and possibly even interviews if luck serves well.
