Duke Blue Devils Commit Jahlil Okafor’s Monster One Handed Dunk Gets Whitney Young to State Finals
You have not seen the last of Jahlil Okafor. I see the look on my friends’ faces when I talk about Okafor; I tell them that they will be seeing him in the pros soon. Their eyes roll or they do not react at all, but I know the truth.
“It’s humbling to be mentioned with guys like Rose, Wade, Jabari and some of the other recent guys to come out of Chicago,” Okafor said to the Peoria Journal Star after the latest win. “Hopefully I can help lead Duke to a national title someday.”
Okafor is going to be a professional player quite soon, and my guess is that it would be two summers from now. With the recent news that the Duke Blue Devils got bounced (by 7! by Mercer!) and Jabari Parker saying that his college career is “incomplete”, all bets are off for the Blue Devils next season.
Parker is going to stay, and Okafor is going to be fresh off of a state title run as you can see below from his one-handed jam.

I can see the whole thing play out in my imagination right now. Okafor and Parker were AAU teammates, and so you know that they already have some chemistry on the court. Oh, and by the way, we have not even mentioned Tyus Jones or Justise Winslow yet. By my count, the Blue Devils have to be the overwhelming favorite to cut down the nets. Obviously not this spring… but the next.
