After signing Amile Jefferson and Rasheed Sulaimon, the Duke Blue Devils are looking ahead to the 2013 recruiting class in hopes of bringing in Jabari Parker.
Parker, a senior at Simeon Career Academy, is ranked No. 1 in the 2013 recruiting class, according to Rivals.com. The 17-year-old small forward from Illinois was the recipient the Gatorade National Player of the Year in 2012, and hopes to commit to a school by November.
Parker’s list of potential schools is at ten, with plans to narrow it to five soon in order to make visits to campuses, according to Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago.
Parker’s 3.7 high school GPA and dedication to Mormonism proves that this kid is humble, smart and the real deal. His presence on any basketball team will undoubtedly help that team reach their goals.
After losing Austin Rivers, Miles Plumlee and Michael Gbinije this year, the Blue Devils would love to sign Parker. He would replenish a lot of lost offense and strenghten hopes of winning a third national championship since 2001.
