Jabari Parker still considering Illinois 

March, 14, 2012
The No. 1 ranked junior said Tuesday he will still consider Illinois despite the recent firing of head coach Bruce Weber.

Jabari Parker (Chicago/Simeon Academy) told ESPN Chicago's Scott Powers although he was disappointed to see Weber leave he would still entertain the Illini.

"I was very disappointed," Parker said. "That was a person who first recruited me growing up. I feel like if the [new] coach there tried to recruit me they wouldn't have a better relationship than [Weber] had. That really plays a key.
