Jahlil Okafor was in Durham over the weekend, and he even got a chance to take in the Duke Blue Devils and UNC Tar Heels with franchise quarterback Tony Romo. We all saw what happened, but will go over it for you anyway. Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood were both magnificent, and they led the Blue Devils to a huge win on Senior Night.
After the game, Okafor did a little interview with Hood that Duke Blue Planet was kind enough to post; you can check it out below.

Okafor is a decent interviewer, and he could definitely have a career in sports media after he is done with what should be a fantastic basketball career. He starts the next chapter of it next season with the Blue Devils, and his commitment basically secured that they would be the preseason number one next season. The true kicker to all of this is that Parker and Hood could potentially stay on next season, which would just not be fair to the rest of the college basketball world.
You can bet that we will be monitoring the situation carefully here at Rant Sports, and if Parker stay I think Roy Williams’ head might just explode immediately from shock. You can bet that ol’ Roy does not want to see Parker on the floor next season, but Williams knows a bit about college basketball lottery talent staying in town. (e.g. power forward Tyler Hansborough)
All for today, but still have a slideshow on the way for you as well.
