6’8″ forward Jabari Parker will be playing in the ACC next basketball season for the Duke Blue Devils. Parker of Chicago’s Simeon High School announced his decision Thursday afternoon on national television by pulling from a duffel bag a Duke tee shirt. Parker’s reasons for choosing the Blue Devils?
“Their history, they’re always in the tournament, Duke’s not too far from home and coach K is one of the best coaches ever”. Parker’s still working to get into playing shape after fracturing his right foot last summer. When asked if he’s going to be 1 and done, “I’ll probably play 2 or 3 years because right now I want to go to school”.
