Jabari Parker is the nation's top recruit
Jabari Parker is one of the most talented high school basketball players to enter the college ranks in the last few years. For this reason, he sits atop ESPN’s Top 100 list of recruits.
He recently cut his list of possible landing spots to five schools. He is still considering Florida, Duke, Michigan State, Stanford and BYU.
Parker’s high school coach recently announced that Parker will be visiting Florida November 2-4.
If Parker were to commit to play for Florida, the Gators would instantly become the favorite to win the national championship.
Billy Donovan and the Gators already boast an incredible roster. In 2013, Florida will likely return most of its phenomenal 2012 recruiting class. This would include point guard Braxton Ogbueze and guards Dillon Graham, Michael Frazier II and Devon Walker.
Florida has already received commitments from two of ESPN’s Top-10 recruits in the class of 2013. Point guard Kasey Hill and power forward Chris Walker will likely play a significant role when they arrive in Gainesville.
Adding a talented player like Jabari Parker to a mix of players this talented will create a team that will certainly win the SEC.
The Gators will already be stacked at the guard position. By bringing in a power forward in Frazier II and an explosive wing like Parker, the Gators will have a team that is loaded at every position.
Parker is expected by many to announce his commitment in November.
If he has a good visit in Gainesville, don’t be surprised if he decides to commit to a Florida program that is clearly heading in the right direction.
