Needless to say, Jabari Parker is a wanted man. When you’re not even in your senior year of high school yet and Sports Illustrated is already calling you the next LeBron James, it’s safe to say every college in the country is going to be groveling for your services.
Parker, the number one recruit in the Class of 2013, has a staggering 14 universities fighting it out for his commitment, according to the folks at rivals.com.
Before Parker makes his choice (which is expected to be in the fall), he has to think long and hard about each university and what they have to offer.
Obviously, it’s impossible to determine exactly where each school falls on Parker’s wish list. But after considering certain factors—both on and off the court—I’ve tried to put myself in Parker’s shoes and determine who’s really in the driver’s seat.
