Jabari Parker still doesn't have a front-runner in his recruiting process, despite the fact that the talented teenager has visited Michigan State, Duke and Florida the last three weekends.

Per ESPN, Parker's father confirmed that Parker will commit after the early signing period, which runs from Nov.14-21.

"I talked to him the other day. He's got to choose what is going to be the right fit for him. That's where we're at. Once we get through the visits, he'll start deciding where everyone is, start doing the comparisons."

Parker's season is slated to get underway on Dec. 1, but the high school senior's status for the opener is in jeopardy. Parker is still rehabbing a fractured right foot, an injury he suffered during the summer. Parker is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Nov. 19, which will go a long way to determining Parker's status for his season opener.

Parker, who attends Chicago's Simeon Career Academy, also plans to visit both Stanford and BYU in November, before making a decision on where he'll play collegiately.

Parker is considered one of the top prizes in the Class of 2013, and ESPN ranks the 6'8" small forward as the No. 2 prospect in his recruiting class.
