Father Of Top Hoops Recruit Jabari Parker Unsure Where His Son Will Go
The countdown for the Jabari Parker sweepstakes is now just 2 days and counting until the man many consider the best high school recruit since LeBron James chooses a school.
The Simeon Career Academy forward has narrowed his choices to BYU, Duke, Florida, Michigan State and Stanford. Parker will make his decision at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Jabari’s father Sonny says he has no clue where his son will go according to ESPN.com.
“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.
“It’s a mystery to me. He’ll make the right decision. We know he’ll make the right decision for him.”
Sonny initially said last week that it would be between Michigan State and Duke, but now is completely unsure.
“That was how I felt at that particular time,” Sonny said. “They’ve been in there since his freshman year. That’s why I looked at those schools with coach [Tom] Izzo and Coach K [Mike Krzyzewski], but that’s because they were recruiting him the longest. He’s still looking at all the schools. It could be anyone still.”
