Jahlil Okafor will be a High School Freshman this year at Chicago's Whitney Young HS. He is already 6'9 and may grow to 7 ft, or even 7'3 as doctors have suggested. While attending a HS basketball camp at Illinois, his father was quoted saying "Kentucky, Georgetown, Syracuse and Connecticut," are his four favorite schools. "He enjoys Illinois. I haven't pushed my biases on him yet." He already has an scholarship offer from DePaul, which he received while he was in the 8th grade. Still a long way to go for his recruiting process, but Hoya fans should be happy to see he currently thinks very highly of the Georgetown Program.
