Simeon standout hopes to build a strong relationship with his coach at the college level, and also aims to maximize his talents in the proper scheme.
Tabbed as the No. 2 prospect in the 2013 high school recruiting class by Scout.com, Chicago native Jabari Parker continues to remain steady in his recruitment with just five college programs on his list of prospective schools.
With all five of his options in Duke, Michigan State, Stanford, Florida and BYU each firmly in contention at the moment, the 6'7, 215-pound forward spoke with Nina Falone of CSNChicago.com about some of the biggest things he's looking for in a prospective home.
"Relationship with the coach, relationship with the team and the style of play," Parker said. "Also, how will [the team] be the following year as far as [whether] the coach is going to stay or not."
Parker was reportedly enamored with the Duke Blue Devils after a recent visit, but has yet to officially reveal where he might be leaning as his decision draws closer. Both Parker and No. 1 overall 2013 prospect Andrew Wiggins, a 6'8, 195-pound forward from West Virginia, have yet to sign with schools at this point in the process, and it's interesting to note that all six of Wiggins' top choices are different than all of Parker's possible destinations.
