Jabari Parker named to USA Today's preseason all-USA team

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Simeon senior Parker and Whitney Young junior Jahlil Okafor named to 10-man USA Today preseason list.

Another honor was added to Sports Illustrated cover boy Jabari Parker's long list of awards for basketball prowess by USA Today this week. The publication named Parker to its 2012-13 high school preseason All-USA team, a list of 10 scholastic stars. Parker, a forward, can lead Simeon High School to its fourth straight 4A state title this season, doubling up fellow Simeon product Derrick Rose's back-to-back titles in 2006 and 2007.

Parker is still undecided on where he will play college ball. Duke is a possible front runner for Parker's talents next season. Parker's short list also includes Michigan State, Brigham Young, Florida and Stanford.

Whitney Young junior Jahlil Okafor, a 6'9 center, is also on the USA Today All-USA preseason team. Okafor, a distant cousin of Washington Wizards center Emeka Okafor, was named MVP at the FIBA U-17 World Championships and averaged 24.8 points and 12.6 rebounds last year while leading his team to a berth in the state semifinals.
