Jabari Parker not concerned with No. 2 ranking

Charles Leclaire-US PRESSWIRE

Jabari Parker isn't worried about being dropped from the top spot in the class of 2013 prospect rankings.

Jabari Parker, one of the top high school basketball players in the country, isn't worried about being dropped from the top spot in the class of 2013 prospect rankings. Parker, out of Simeon Vocational in Chicago, was moved down to the No. 2 ranking when Andrew Wiggins reclassified as a class of 2013 recruit.

On Monday, Parker said, "it's unimportant to me ... At the end of the day I'm going to be in college and they aren't really going to be ranking people." Parker added that improving his game was the most important thing to him, but that his dad got a little upset about the ranking.

The 6'8 small forward has narrowed down his college options to five choices. Parker is reported to be deciding between Duke, Michigan State, Florida, Stanford and BYU. He is still in the process of visiting schools and isn't expected to make his decision until after the early signing period.
