Duke Blue Devils Commit Jabari Parker Will Be Beloved By Blue Devil Nation

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Jabari Parker is enjoying his last summer in Chicago, and even went to his senior prom last night.

He also accepted an athlete of the year award last night too, but google research did not reveal to me what award this one was in particular, but I did see the tweet below recently.

One thing is for sure, Duke Blue Devil fans are about to fall in love with this young man. He is talented, humble, and hardworking, which is everything you look for in a young star. Parker may only be at Duke for a year, but his talents will be appreciated no matter how long he is there. I’ve said here before that he is the best player the Blue Devils have recruited since Grant Hill.

He has even said in the past that he may go to college for a few years, which would thrill Blue Devil fans even more. We will just have to see what happens, but will definitely let you know of any updates here at Rant Sports Prep.
