Jabari Parker recruiting: BYU fans make push for Simeon star

Jonathan Daniel

The BYU Cougars made 6,300 T-shirts to show their love for Simeon star Jabari Parker.

Two BYU Cougars fans used donations to produce 6,300 T-shirts to show their admiration for basketball recruit Jabari Parker. According to Jeff Eisenberg, Greg Welch and Tony Brown made shirts that read "Chicago to Provo" ingrained in the image of the Chicago skyline above Mount Timpanogos, which sits near Provo, Utah.

Parker, who is a practicing Latter-Day Saints member, has the Cougars on his short list of schools he may attend. Duke is also on that list, and after his official visit, the BYU fans told Eisenberg that they felt like they needed to step up their game in wooing the 2013 forward that ESPN ranks as the second best overall player in the class.

Florida, Stanford, and Michigan State are also in the running. But because of his faith, Parker's darkhorse has been the Cougars.

Welch and Brown recently handed out their T-shirts before BYU's game against Cal. Most of the student section wore them on Saturday in a win against Cal State Northridge.
