Jabari Parker, the nations number 2 high school basketball player had decided to verbally commit to Coach Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke University Blue Devils. Parker chose Duke over 4 others that include Michigan State, BYU, Florida and Stanford. Duke will add Parker to a class that already includes small forward Semi Ojeleye and sharpshooting Matt Jones.
Parker will add size and scoring ability to an already stacked lineup in Durham next year.
The Parker camp kept the information filtering out to the media to a minimum with no one truly knowing which school or schools were in the lead for his services at any given time.Â Each fan base whose school was in the running probably assumed they would be the destination for the 6’9 small forward but in the end in it was Duke.
