Jahlil Okafor won a national championship, was a first-team All-American and in June could become the top overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Not bad for someone who was graduating high school this time last year.

Duke relied on freshmen this past season, with three in the starting lineup and another one, Grayson Allen, providing major contributions during the team’s NCAA Tournament run.

In the video above, Okafor discusses his lone season in Durham, his relationship with Coach K and the team’s chemistry, which helped a team with only eight scholarship players cut down the nets in Indianapolis.
