07:25 AM ET 08.09 | In addition to his game, the position he plays makes Jahlil Okafor the center of attention among the 2014 recruiting class. There are some in NBA circles who believe Okafor could play in the league right now if given the opportunity, and he???s already being penciled in as the top overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by most talent evaluators. ... Okafor is currently considering eight schools -- Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State, Arizona and Baylor -- and he's expecting to make a decision in the next several months. So far, he has two official visits scheduled at Baylor and Kentucky. While some young players would drag out their decision and revel in the national spotlight, Okafor wants to get the process over with before the start of his senior season of high school.

Don't we see something like this every year? A kid in HS who is projected as the #1 pick? This illustrates how weak the NBA has become. Too many teams, half of which exist to fill out the schedule for the other half, because of an 82 game season.

Duke is the only logical choice.
