Duke Blue Devils’ commit Jahlil Okafor opens his season tomorrow, and you can bet will write a recap piece of it tomorrow. If any video pops up on it too, will be sure to get that out to y’all. Thanks to the tweeter below for the reminder of this going down and the game is at UIC if you are in Chicago and trying to check it out. May just do so myself if I can get my work done early enough but will let you all know on twitter if end up trying to go.

Okafor will be a great presence for the Blue Devils and it probably does not hurt that he will be joined by the top ranked point guard in the country Tyus Jones. They met in third grade, but in true bro-mance fashion they will get to be college buddies together. It will be a fascinating on court relationship to watch, and it will be a bitter sweet moment when they are no longer on the same team. Cannot get sentimental about it just yet though, because we are going to get to enjoy it!
First though we will have to see if Okafor can get a win in his season debut or of things start off on the wrong note.
Two more Prep Sports pieces coming tonight and then be sure to check out my pro basketball previews tomorrow morning. Thanks for reading, and also may the legend Nelson Mandela rest in peace. His spirit will never die.
