Recruiting: Jabari Parker trims list to 10

The nation’s top recruit for the class of 2013 on Wednesday trimmed his list to 10 schools. Those are in no order: Kansas,  Michigan State, Kentucky, Stanford, Florida, Duke, BYU, Georgetown, North Carolina and DePaul.

The 6-7 215-pound small forward has a very strong Mormon belief, making BYU the leader. He turns 19 at the end of his freshman year at college. Parker will then make a decision upon going on a two-year mission or play in the NBA.

Parker who plays for Chicago Simeon Career Academy, has kept open the option of staying in the area, by keeping DePaul as a contender.

Last season, Parker led Simeon to their third straight title by averaging 20 points, nine rebounds, five assists, three blocks and one steal per game. In addition to excelling on the court, Parker is a great student nearly pulling in a 4.0 GPA as a junior.
