Jabari Parker, the nation's top high school basketball player, has offers from college basketball power programs such as Duke, Kentucky, Kansas and North Carolina.
Parker isn’t shying away from all of the attention, but he’s determined to focus on one game at a time.
“I glance at the coaches a little bit and notice they’re there, but once it’s time to play I focus on me and my teammates and trying to get the win,” Parker said.
Parker has grown accustomed to the media focus after each game.
“I don’t mind the attention. I can’t mind it because right now I have it easy,” Parker said. “Once I start getting a lot of attention at the next level that is when it starts to get harder. Right now I don’t really complain and I take these interviews and attention as a positive.”
Parker talked about his ideal college destination.
“I’m looking for a program that fits me and I have to get along with the coach,” Parker said. “I want a place that’s going to build my character and I want to mature and be exposed to the things that are coming my way in the future.”
