Jabari Parker Now Has Major Obstacle in Kentucky Wildcats

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Jabari Parker wants to win a national championship. Whether that will lead to the young man staying beyond his freshman season remains to be seen. Keep in mind that he could always attend a Mormon mission after his freshman year as well.

With his championship window so small, it will be interesting to see which teams emerge as contenders against Parker and the Duke Blue Devils. He is a born winner and competitor and watching him play at Cameroon Indoor will be quite a sight to see.

The Kentucky Wildcats, with the recent commitment of top 2013 power forward Julius Randle are now Parker’s chief obstacle to a national title. Randle joins a Wildcats team that will also include the twin guards Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison. They are ranked number one in the country at shooting guard and point guard respectively. Barring Andrew Wiggins going to Chapel Hill, it will be hard to imagine anyone other than the Blue Devils and the Wildcats as the preseason ranked number one and two teams in the country next year.

Parker’s Simeon Career Academy Wolverines (Chicago, IL) won 4 state titles while Parker was there and he most likely wants those winning ways to continue at the college level. We’ll just have to see if the Wildcats ever stand in his path.
