Duke's Jahlil Okafor is drawing rave reviews -- how about the rest of the 2015 class?
If there is one sure thing in the crop of 2015 NBA draft prospects, it’s powerful Duke freshman Jahlil Okafor. League executives describe the 18-year-old center as “the complete package,” “a total stud” and “the best center prospect since Dwight Howard," who was drafted out of high school in 2004.
The rest of the field? There’s talent, but also plenty of question marks. “There are a lot of guys you like after Okafor, but no sure things,” an Eastern Conference scout said. “The next draft is going to be about potential.”
Indeed, it should be an interesting next few months leading into a draft that is expected to include the usual group of freshmen in addition to several upperclassmen and an intriguing array of international prospects.
