The major plot point in the Jahlil Okafor recruitment tale hasn’t changed—he and point guard Tyus Jones continue to insist that they want to play together in college, which will make one lucky program very happy in the future.
Arizona, Baylor, Duke, Ohio State, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky and Michigan State are all listed as potential destinations, but Okafor only has five official visits scheduled. The Bears (this weekend), Wildcats (Kentucky and Arizona), Jayhawks and Blue Devils make the visit itinerary.
Interestingly enough, Jones will be accompanying Okafor to Baylor, Kansas and Duke. Given that the two would like to play together that has to be a promising sign for those three, and Duke is widely considered the favorite.
For what it’s worth, Okafor’s father is not pleased with the assumption that Jones and his son are considered locks for the Blue Devils and insists that the process has to play out.
