Jahlil Okafor's AAU coach, Mike Irvin, believes there is a strong chance he ends up committing to Duke.
Okafor is the consensus top player in the 2014 freshman class.
“[Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski] was at every game, he was the only head coach that was really following Jahlil all over the place,” Irvin said. “If [Cliff Alexander] was sitting out it would only be Coach K watching that game. In my mind Duke has a really good chance to land [Okafor]. Coach K has done a good job of recruiting him.”
There have been rumors that Okafor and Tyus Jones will commit to the same school.
“I think there is a great chance Tyus is going to Duke,” Irvin said. “So if [Okafor and Tyus] are going to school together..."
Okafor's father recently said that his son doesn't have a clear leader.
