Jahlil Okafor Dating an Arizona Graduate with Philadelphia Roots

Jahlil Okafor has met a nice young woman according to TMZ. Okafor, who played full-contact five-on-five on Monday for the first time since training camp, is dating an Arizona graduate and Philadelphia native named Lauren. She graduated in 2014 and was a Tuscon12 at Arizona, meaning she had a 3.0 or higher.

Is it any more ridiculous to suggest Okafor finding a smart, older woman is a good thing for his career  than saying Jessica Simpson nearly derailed Tony Romo’s career? Knock on wood for Philly fans, but Okafor hasn’t been in any trouble since 2015. This could be a good sign.
