Jabari Parker will announce his college decision on Dec. 20 at Chicago Simeon High School.
Parker will choose either Duke, Michigan State, Florida, BYU or Stanford.
“He mentioned that he wanted to do it that day,” Sonny Parker, Jabari’s father, confirmed to SNY.tv by phone after the news was first reported by Joe Henrickson of City/Suburban Hoop Report. “They play Monday, Wednesday and Friday so Thursday is a good day for him to make his announcement.”
Sonny said his son had visited every school officially except Stanford “but he visited them twice unofficially.”
Sonny also said he believes his son has made the decision but hasn't told anyone.
Duke and Michigan State are widely considered the favorites to sign Parker.
Parker is the No. 2 prospect in the class behind Andrew Wiggins.
