6’11 Jahlil Okafor is arguably the nation’s best (next) big man and he’s just a sophomore (Class of 2014).
Jahlil draws frequent comparison’s to OSU star Jared Sullinger and Coach K was quoted as saying Okafor could play for his Duke team NOW!
Oakafor led the Whitney Young Dolphins (Chicago Public League) to a 4A regional title averaging 24.0 points per game and 8 rebounds per game for the season. Opponents consistently tried to double team and even triple team him.
Enjoy this season mix from Jahlil Okafor’s sophomore high school season across the Chicago area.
Thanks to Coach Ty Slaughter and Twin and everyone at Chicago Whitney Young HS, especially the players and coaches!
