Jabari Parker Will Likely Decide Before Senior Season
Jabari Parker wants to win an NCAA championship, but hasn’t eliminated long-shot programs from consideration.
"You never know. Jabari is a different kid," Simeon coach Robert Smith said. "His recruitment is wide open. He hasn't narrowed down (his list of schools). But he does want to win a national title. And he is looking at schools that have a capability to win a national title."
Smith said it’s a mistake to assume Parker will be a one-and-done player.
"Harrison Barnes came back for a second year. So did Jared Sullinger," Smith said. "Jabari fits their mold as well as Derrick Rose and Anthony Davis. I never would be able to say that's what he is going to do. We'll have to sit back and watch."
Smith predicts Parker will make a decision this fall.
