Published on July 14, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Some call Jabari Parker the best high school basketball prospect since LeBron James. Now the high school senior to be has cut his list of schools to ten. Parker, is a 6’-8”, 220 lb. small forward from Simeon Vocational High School in Chicago, Illinois.

The 10 schools that made Parker’s list.

Kentucky, Stanford, Michigan State, Kansas, Florida, Duke, BYU, Georgetown, DePaul and North Carolina.

No shocks to the schools on this list. I am sure that Illinois fans are not happy that they are not on Parker’s list.

“I want to make my decision in November if that’s possible,” he told The Associated Press at the Gatorade national prep athletes of the year dinner a night earlier. “I just need to cut it down so I’ll be able to go on visits and make my decision from there.”

He hopes to cut the list to 5 sometime in the fall.

Parker is a big time scorer that can score in a number of ways. He excels at attacking off the dribble and at the rim. Parker has also developed a low post game. Parker is mature beyond his years. He is a strong competitor that always brings it. Parker need to continue to improve his strength and outside shooting ability.

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