Duke Blue Devils Commit Jahlil Okafor Believes Whitney Young “About to Start Rolling”

Jahlil Okafor

Guy Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Jahlil Okafor’s season started with a loss, but the center got things back on track Thursday night with a nationally televised win over Apple Valley (MN) and his future teammate Tyus Jones.

Okafor tweeted after the game, and it appears that though disappointed a bit with his play (that is amazing to me) he now feels the the Dolphins are on the right track and it could end up being a pretty good year for Whitney Young (IL) fans.

My prediction is that Okafor will win the state title at the end of the year. Whitney Young has been eliminated by Simeon Academy (IL) all of the last three years, and if the Dolphins cannot break through this year then they never will with Okafor on the team. That would just be a shame given all of the impact that the center has had for them, but definitely not expecting it to go down like that here at Rant Sports Prep.

Okafor is going to be an instant-oatmeal star for the Blue Devils next season, and if Thursday was any indication Blue Devil fans have a lot to look forward to with both players coming to town. They will certainly be a lot of highlight plays if not another banner by the end of the year.

That is all for today, but as always to end the day here is fortune cookie wisdom from one of the greatest minds to ever walk the earth.
