Jahlil Okafor has lost 12 pounds since the end of the college season, trying to get into better shape ahead of the NBA Draft and the beginning of his professional career.
"Going into the season, I was in great shape, and then as the season progressed I kind of lost that shape. [Due to] injuries, I wasn’t able to practice as much so I wasn’t as active. Now I’ve gotten back to what I was doing before I went to school, changed my diet up a little bit, and just working hard. It’ll just make me a better athlete, taking care of my body. That just goes without saying."
Okafor had outstanding production on offense, but there are questions about his ability on the defensive end of the floor.
