Duke Blue Devils Commit Jahlil Okafor Faces Cliff Alexander Friday Night for CPS Title
Jahlil Okafor has helped Whitney Young (IL) to exactly the position they want to be in, and tomorrow night the Dolphins will get a chance to win the CPS title over Curie (IL) and their star forward Cliff Alexander. ZagsBlogs did a thorough preview of the game, and if you want to check it out it below feel free.

This game will not only determine the CPS champ, but will also probably have an effect on recruiting rankings between the two players. It is probably not fair that things shift after only one game, but that is the sports media world we live in. My pick is the Dolphins tomorrow night, but it is not because of any flaw of Alexander’s; the main reason is just because of Whitney Young’s depth and how it will be pretty impossibly for the other squad to cover Okafor without double-teaming him. This will leave players like Paul White wide open for jumpers, which could end up spelling doom for Curie.
Then again, Alexander recently dropped a triple-double with 10 blocks, so also keep your mind open to the possibility that he could just go off. One more Prep piece coming later on, and will also touch on the last undefeated college basketball team and why they will not stand the test of time.
