Jabari Parker Will Not Sign Early
Jabari Parker is not planning to sign a letter of intent during the early signing period, which runs from Nov. 14-21.
“He’ll probably make a verbal decision, but he probably won’t be able to sign until the spring because the signing period,” Parker's father Sonny Parker said. “ … I don’t think he’ll be done with all his five visits.
“The only way it can happen is if he decides early during his five visits.”
Parker's high school coach expects him to be resolute with his decision.
“Once he makes a decision I know that’s going to be it,” Simeon head coach Robert Smith said Tuesday. “That’s not how he or his family operates.
“I told him, if you get to a place where your heart is in it and you feel like this is the place for me, then there’s no sense in taking those other visits, if this is how you feel. … Make sure you choose what is going to be best for you.
“His situation is rare. You have options. A lot of people don’t have options. And people will wait for your options, too.”
