Illinois Back Under Consideration By Jabari Parker
Illinois did not make a July 11th list of 10 schools Jabari Parker was considering, but the school continues to recruit him. Parker's father confirmed that the Illini could still be considered.
BYU, DePaul, Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, North Carolina and Stanford were on Parker's list.
Bruce Weber was replaced as head coach by John Groce following the 11-12 season. Weber and the Parker family developed a relationship over the past few years.
"They're still in touch," Parker's father, Sonny Parker, said of Illinois. "You never know. You never know how things are going to pan out."
