Jabari Parker, the five-star high school basketball recruit out of Chicago, had a very good visit with Duke, making the Blue Devils the clear leader to land the forward according to Michael O'Brien of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Parker, a 6'7 forward at Simeon High School in Chicago, has narrowed down his choices to five schools and is now in the process of visiting with each of his possible choices. Parker's potential schools are Duke, Michigan State, Florida, BYU, and Stanford. After visiting with Duke, Parker will head to Florida for a visit with the Gators on Nov. 2.

Parker was the No. 1 player in most class of 2013 recruiting rankings before Andrew Wiggins reclassified and joined that class. Before visiting with Duke, it was believed that the Blue Devils and Michigan State Spartans were his top two schools. Parker could also potentially decide to go on his Mormon mission after graduating high school.
