Duke Blue Devil Commit Jahlil Okafor Named to McDonald’s All American Team Along with Three Future Teammates
Jahlil Okafor got some nice news lately, and the Duke Blue Devils appear to have put together quite a nice recruiting class for themselves. Much thanks to Duke Basketball for tweeting this below, and it will be fun to watch all four of these commits at the United Center this spring.
All four Duke signees for 2014—Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones, Justise Winslow and Grayson Allen—were named McDonald's All-Americans this year

Will try to secure credentials for this one, but if cannot get it will still probably go to the game. It would be quite fun to attend the practices in the week before, but that is still up in the air at the moment. The accolades are not done for Okafor yet, and believe he will secure his first state title by the end of this season. His way was blocked by former AAU teammate Jabari Parker for three years, but that is an obstacle the center does not need to worry about anymore at the high school level. They are good friends and it will be interesting to see if they become college teammates ever.
Thanks for stopping by and keep an eye out later for a piece on point guard Tyus Jones and how efficient he has been from the perimeter this season.
