(Jahlil) Okafor, who on Tuesday was named the Morgan Wooten Player of the Year, is the consensus No. 1 player in the class of 2014. Okafor verbally committed to Duke in November and is projected as the No. 1 pick in 2015 by DraftExpress.com. The 6-foot-10, 270-pound center said the potential change concerns him because he may consider leaving college after one year.

“I’ll definitely have the option of going to the NBA after my first year,” he said. “[The increased age minimum] is something that could potentially affect me also.”
