Jabari Parker still weighing options, according to father

Andy Lyons

The coveted high school basketball recruit has not yet made up his mind.

Jabari Parker, a consensus top-two high school recruit in the country, is set to announce his college decision on Thursday afternoon. That said, Parker's dad said that the Chicago-area star has yet to make up his mind.

"He's still weighing things," Parker's father, Sonny Parker said. "I'm his dad. I don't know where he's going to. I could ask him what school he's going to, and he'll say I'm not 100 percent sure. Hopefully, he'll know something by Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

Parker has reportedly narrowed his choices down to five schools: the BYU Cougars, Duke Blue Devils, Florida Gators, Michigan St. Spartans and Stanford Cardinal. Parker has long been considered either a Michigan State or Duke lean, with the Gators being the dark horse.

Parker has starred at Chicago's Simeon High, which was once home to Derrick Rose. In his junior season, Parker led Simeon to a state title and was named the Gatorade Player of the Year after averaging 19.5 points, 8.9 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 3.3 blocks and 1.4 assists per game.

Parker is currently sitting out as he recovers from a broken bone in his foot, but he should be read to rejoin the team at the beginning of the year.
