Jabari Parker received recruiting advice from Derrick Rose.
Rose advised Parker, Illinois’ reigning Mr. Basketball, to consider comfort level when choosing a college.
“Usually when I talk to him it's brief,” Parker said of his conversations with Rose. “He gives me a little advice as far as college, choosing who's going to be there for you…someone who’s going to help you not only for basketball, but help you in school and give you dreams to strive for.”
When asked to identify factors that will influence his decision, Parker said: "Relationship with the coach, relationship with the team and the style of play. Also, how will [the team] be the following year as far as [whether] the coach is going to stay or not."
Parker is considering Michigan State, Stanford, BYU, Duke and Florida.
