UConn is Added to Jabari Parker’s College List
Jabari Parker, the nation’s No. 1 ranked player in the Class of 2013, has added University of Connecticut to his list of colleges he’s considering.
University of Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie will visit Parker’s home next week. Parker’s father Sonny Parker, says that it was Parker’s decision to add Connecticut.
“He’s picking all the schools for the home visits. He’s talk to Coach Calhoun previously…That’s one of the schools that showed some interest to him,” says Sonny Parker.
It is believed that Michigan State’s coach Tom Izzo will visit Parker on Thursday and Duke’s coach Mike Krzyzewski will come Friday. Stanford’s coach Johnny Dawkins, North Carolina’s coach Roy Williams and Ollie are also scheduled to meet with the Simeon star next week. Coach Williams was suppose to visit Parker this week, but had to reschedule due to his tumor surgery on Wednesday.
Florida, DePaul, BYU, and Kansas have already met with Parker, but no other information was released on the visits.
I believe Parker made a wise decision in adding UConn. UConn has great personnel and a winning history. Although Calhoun is no longer coaching UConn, Ollie is experienced. He played 13 seasons in the NBA (1997-2010) and was an assistant to Calhoun from 2010-2012. Uconn recently won the NCAA Championship in 2011 and made the Final Four three out of the last eight years. UConn would be a fine choice if Parker decides to commit.
