Jabari Parker, Forward Will Play Out of Position with Duke Blue Devils

Jabari Parker

Guy Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Recently read a Bleacher Report article that claimed that Jabari Parker will have to play out of position next year at power forward. This is true, but Parker has the size and skill to make it work without it affecting his draft status.

Parker has low post skills and he also can work a man off the dribble so he will be a nightmare matchup for most college basketball powers forwards. The game is moving more and more to small ball anyway so having shooters on the floor who can space it is key indeed.

Ultimately Parker playing out of position will likely help him at the next level, because you never know what you are going to be asked to do. Having versatility as a player enables you to play in a number of different systems. This is great news for Parker.
