Jabari Parker To Visit Florida
Jabari Parker has scheduled an official visit to Florida, his high school coach said Thursday.
Parker is scheduled to Florida from Nov. 2-4, Duke on Oct. 27 and is still working out dates with Michigan State.
Simeon coach Robert Smith believes there is a common thread between the schools Parker has picked for his official visits.
"For the most part, they got great coaches," Smith said. "They all have great history. They all have guys who played at his position and played in the NBA. The schools themselves are three great academic schools. Those are things they look at.
"He's looking at schools to see how they can prepare him. He watched the ESPN movie 'Broke' the other day, and we had a conversation about that. He saw how a lot of people financially were out of money now. That's something he's really looking at. He doesn't want that to happen."
