Duke vs. Michigan St. for Jabari Parker? 

December, 12, 2012
Jabari Parker (Chicago/Simeon), the No. 2 overall prospect in the ESPN 100, appears to have reached a verdict. Next Thursday, Dec. 20, we’ll all know his college decision.

For what it’s worth, if the words Stanford, Florida or BYU come out of his mouth, I’d be surprised.

Matt Marcinkowski/ESPNHSJabari Parker, the No. 2 prospect in the ESPN 100, will make his college decision known on Dec. 20.
Let me preface this take with a disclaimer: This is my opinion, crafted solely from observations and information I’ve gathered. When ESPN recently asked me for my pick on Parker’s decision, I tried to list Duke as 1A and Michigan State as 1B. My editors had other ideas and made me choose. I picked Duke.
