Jahlil Okafor is clearly ready for a challenge beyond high school basketball, but he still has a year left so you can bet we will cover it. You can see highlights from his latest dominant performance below.

He is committed to the Duke Blue Devils, and he has drawn comparisons to Tim Duncan so you can bet that GMs are taking an interest in him. He was a package recruiting deal with the top ranked point guard in the class, and the duo will be a absolute nightmare to cover in a halfcourt set.
He is going for his first state title this season, and we will have to see if Cliff Alexander gets in the way or not. Would really feel for Okafor, but as they say, we learn more from our mistakes than our successes. Something tells me the young man will win a title at some level, and that is simply because of his skill set.
Thanks for reading, and as always a little bit of fortune cookie wisdom to send you off with.
