Jabari narrows list

Reigning N-G All-State Player of the Year Jabari Parker plans to make official visits to Duke, Florida, Michigan State, Stanford and Brigham Young.

His father, Sonny Parker, tells The Associated Press that no other schools are in the running.  He says Jabari “is going to take all those five visits and then he’ll decide.”

Sonny Parker wasn’t sure of the exact dates, although he did say Jabari will visit Duke at the end of the month and Florida in the first week of November.

Two teammates — Kendrick Nunn and Jaylon Tate — have committed to Illinois.

Last season, Parker averaged 19.5 points, 8.9 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 3.3 blocks and 1.4 steals in leading Simeon Career Academy to its third consecutive Illinois state title.
