Jabari Parker will attend college rather than go on a Mormon mission after he graduates from high school next year.
"I know for a fact that I'm going to college my first year," Parker announced on Friday.
Parker would like to make his college decision by January or February at the latest.
"If I want to make my announcement in the winter, I'm probably behind schedule," Parker said. "I probably will need to be doing a little more work. I'm getting lazy. … My decision, it's going to come kind of easy because I have a lot of people in my circle just telling me different things."
