This is a nice sort of thing to see, not that it carries any particular weight. But it is encouraging: Jahlil Okafor’s AAU coach thinks Coach K has worked hard and that Duke has a “great chance” at landing Okafor.
His father is somewhat more neutral, saying of Okafor and buddy Tyus Jones that “Duke has been doing a great job recruiting them, just like everyone else is. I don’t know what Jahlil and Tyus are gonna do at this point, so for anyone else to say they do is far-fetched. They are still at a standstill.”
We wouldn’t dream of arguing with him. We’d only say that surely he has more insights into Jahlil’s mind than he’s willing to tell to a newspaper.
