CHICAGO — Reigning News-Gazette All-State Player of the Year Jabari Parker of Chicago Simeonis still weighing his college options.
His father, Sonny, says he is trying to decide between Michigan State, Duke, Florida, Stanford and Brigham Young. Jabari Parker is scheduled to announce his choice Thursday during a news conference at Simeon.
Sonny Parker says his son is “still undecided, still talking to the coaches and making sure that’s he’s going to make the right decision.”
Two of Parker's teammates at Simeon — Jaylon Tate and Kendrick Nunn — have signed with Illinois.
Florida’s Billy Donovan attended Monday’s game at Chicago’s Carver Military Academy and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski caught a game last week.
Sonny Parker isn’t sure which way his son’s leaning, just that Jabari “wouldn’t be wasting coaches’ time if he already knew.”
