Saw the tweet below and this tweeter wrote that Jahlil Okafor and Jabari Parker have apparently talked about playing together. Not so sure if that is true, but I know that they are quite close and Okafor has talked to Parker about the college basketball recruiting process and other things as they competed often throughout high school and were even on the same AAU team.
@Bferron23 I hate to tell you but Jabari Parker will stay 2 yrs and he and Okafor have already talked about playing with each other!

Parker was last year’s Gatorade High School Boys Basketball player of the year and I was lucky enough to get to interview him. Parker struck me as quite a humble young man and my main thought at the time was that I was witnessing the beginnings of a star in the making.
Andrew Wiggins is top prize. But Julius Randle, Marcus Smart, Jabari Parker, Andrew Harrison & Aaron Gordon all considered prizes too

Parker’s college career is going to be fascinating to watch and the only way that he will ever play with Okafor is if Parker were to stay on past his freshman year.
dook fans are really stuck up on this jabari parker . You better hope he has a good year or you'll be hearing it from me.
