Duke Blue Devils Commit Jahlil Okafor Will Make Them a Prime Contender Next Season

Jahlil Okafor’s season is still rolling, and happy to say that Rant Sports Prep predicted his victory over Loyola (IL). He had a double-double in the win, and I know that thanks to the tweet below.

Okafor is the top ranked player in the country according to most outlets, and he committed to the Duke Blue Devils in a joint conference with blue chip point guard Tyus Jones back in November. Ever since then, Blue Devil fans have been wondering if Jabari Parker is going to stay in town and give them a super team.

Coach K has been using those two team USA gold medals to good effect in recruiting, that is for sure, and it must be quite a luxury to be able to give your recruits a chance to meet LeBron James. Not a bad life at all, and that is why it is not surprising that the Blue Devils continue to deliver consistent recruiting results.

My prediction for the Blue Devils next season? Behind some brilliant post play and power dunks from Okafor, they will get at least to the Final Four.

One more Prep piece is sitting in the kitchen today, and then we will also hit you with a pro basketball slideshow.
