Last week during the McDonald’s All-American festivities, my colleagues – Josh Gershon, Beth Long and Rob Harrington — and myself asked the participating athletes who they thought was player and defender in the 2014 class.
While the answers varied some, in the end players were fairly unanimous in their selections.
Jahil Okafor, who is currently Scout.com’s No. 1 player, received 10 of the 22 votes, as the top player in the class. He backed up that talk during the McDonaldâs game, where he was a co-MVP, as well as during the competitive practices.
