This year Jahill Okafor has demonstrated why he is not only one of the biggest players in this year’s class but he is one of the most dominant players in his class.

But the purpose of this article is to swing for the fences and attempt to guess where a huge loss or two might actually occur. After all, strange things sometimes do take place amidst March Madness.
