The Duke Blue Devils are getting a special player in Jabari Parker next year. Called by SI the “best high school player” since LeBron James. Recently saw the Rant Sports piece below, which claims Duke will be the best in the ACC next year. I have to agree much as it pains my heart to concede anything to Duke.

Parker will be a star for the Blue Devils and he will be leaned upon for shotmaking and ball handling from the get go. My guess is that he will be a shoe in for ACC freshman of the year and could even be a legitimate contender for player of the year in the conference.
Andrew Wiggins had to go and spoil things by reclassifying his graduating class, which resulted in many recruiting services rating Wiggins over Parker.

I personally think it’s a bit of a toss up. Wiggins is a better athlete than Parker, but I would say Parker’s all around abilities are more well developed at this point. Guess we will find out at the Champions Classic in Chicago.
