Highly-touted basketball prospect Jabari Parker will announce his college decision this afternoon at 4 eastern time.
Florida is on Parker’s list along with BYU, Duke, Michigan State and Stanford.
“He’s still weighing things,” Parker’s father, Sonny Parker told ESPN this week. “I’m his dad. I don’t know where he’s going to. I could ask him what school he’s going to, and he’ll say I’m not 100 percent sure. Hopefully, he’ll know something by Wednesday night or Thursday morning.”
Sonny Parker told USA Today last week that he believes the decision would come down to Duke and Michigan State. But he believes all the teams on his son’s list are still in contention.
“That was how I felt at that particular time,” Sonny Parker told ESPN. “They’ve been in there since his freshman year. That’s why I looked at those schools with coach (Tom) Izzo and Coach K (Mike Krzyzewski), but that’s because they were recruiting him the longest. He’s still looking at all the schools. It could be anyone still.”
UPDATE: Parker picks Duke. The Sporting News Mike DeCourcy calls Parker “the most esteemed prospect coach Mike Krzyzewski has landed in more than 30 years on the Duke bench.”
