Remarkably, for the third year in a row, the Windy City is home to the No. 1 high school basketball player in America, with rising Whitney Young senior Jahlil Okafor following in the large footsteps of prior Public League phenoms Jabari Parker (2013) and Anthony Davis (2012).
Fresh off his fourth high school basketball state title in as many years, Simeon standout Jabari Parker has been named the Morgan Wootten High School Player of the Year.
Simeon’s Jabari Parker will certainly be remembered for many things. The Duke commit was Illinois’ Mr. Basketball as a junior and will likely be that again in 2013. He was the National Player of the year as a junior and it would be hard to argue against him to repeat. He had his number 22 retired at the school while still playing.
It’s 2012, so when someone has something they need to say, they go to Twitter.
Simeon forward Jabari Parker verbally committed to Duke Thursday.
According to a report, the nation’s most highly-touted high school basketball prospect will announce his collegiate decision at a press conference on Dec. 20.
Back in July, after Simeon superstar Jabari Parker left the Illinois of his Top 10 list of potential college pitstops, I wrote that when it comes to basketball recruiting, second place truly is the first loser.
Illini fans should know not to get their hopes up that Jabari will indeed bring his road show to Champaign in 2013.
When it comes to college basketball recruiting, second place truly is the first loser.
Simeon basketball star Jabari Parker, considered by most to be the top high school basketball player in next year’s class, announced on Twitter today that the University of Illinois is not on his final list of colleges, although DePaul is.
He’s only a junior in high school, but Simeon’s Jabari Park has landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
After a lackluster exhibition game by Krys Faber, DePaul coach Oliver Purnell regained confidence in his senior center.
