Cliff Alexander and Jahlil Okafor Jockeying For Position In Big Men Recruiting Rankings

Jahlil Okafor

Jahlil Okafor and Cliff Alexander probably should get used to battling, because something tells me that it is going to happen for years. Saw the tweet below and it appears 24/7 Sports is actually picking Alexander over Okafor.

Okafor committed to the Duke Blue Devils back in November, and he was a package recruiting deal with the top ranked point guard in the class Tyus Jones. Together they will make the Tobacco Road squad the preseason number one ranked team, but whether the squad goes all the way will be up to them. Alexander, meanwhile, will be trying to make things happen in the Big 12, while Myles Turner (the third ranked big man in the class) is still uncommitted. He is now the top ranked player in the class who has not picked a school yet, so we will definitely keep you posted of any updates here at Rant Sports Prep.

Jeff Goodman likes all three of the top ranked big men in the class, so we will have to see where they all land in the rankings. That is all for today, and if you missed any of the pro basketball content, we caught you up on most of the major injury updates.
