Jabari Parker has enjoyed the calm return to strictly playing basketball following the announcement of his commitment to Duke.

“I’m so glad that’s over,” said Parker. “I have never been a guy who likes a bunch of attention, and ever since I committed to Duke last month it’s pretty much calmed down. Now that I’m back to playing it feels good to just be able to focus on getting my game back. That’s all I’m focused on.”

Parker returned from a fractured foot suffered in July during the month of December. Parker is still getting his timing and stamina back.

Parker admitted that he “probably came back a few weeks too early.”
