CHICAGO -- Jahlil Okafor won the 2014 4A IHSA state basketball championship at Whitney Young and earned national recognition as one of the top high school players in the country. After one season at Duke (where all he did was merely lead the Blue Devils to a National Championship), Okafor declared for the NBA Draft and is expected to be one of the first players selected Thursday in New York City.

Okafor's high school basketball coach Tryone Slaughter stopped by the WGN/CLTV studios to chat with the hosts of "Sports Feed" Jarrett Payton and Josh Frydman about Okafor's NBA potential and what he learned from Coach K at Duke.
