Potential MSU recruit Jabari Parker set to announce decision next week
MSU men’s basketball coach Tom Izzo and his staff will find out how they fared in the hotly-contested recruitment of Chicago Simeon High basketball standout Jabari Parker by the end of next week.
According to several Chicago media outlets, including the Chicago Sun-Times, Parker will announce his decision on Dec. 20.
The 6-foot-8 forward is considered one of the top recruits in the country, ranked No. 2 overall by ESPN and No. 3 by rivals.com.
Rivals has described Parker’s decision as a“relative mystery,” but said MSU and Duke have been considered the leaders among a list that includes BYU, Florida and Stanford.
Parker has won three state titles in three years at Chicago Simeon High School.
MSU currently has no players committed to their 2013 recruiting class.
