Unsigned recruit: Jabari Parker
Breaking down the recruitment of the No. 2 prospect in the ESPN 100
With the early signing period in the rearview mirror and the spring signing period not starting until April 17, we have a chance to analyze the best uncommitted prospects in the Class of 2013 and analyze their recruitment.
So each week between now and the spring signing period, our RecruitingNation staff will break down a different best available senior, looking at what makes him special, freshman projections in college, decision factors and ultimately a prediction on where he signs.
We start the series not at No. 1 with Andrew Wiggins but at No. 2 with Jabari Parker, since Parker is slated to announce his decision sooner than any other major unsigned 2013 prospect. (On Wednesday, news broke that Parker will make his decision on Dec. 20.) Parker has narrowed his list to five finalists: BYU, Duke, Florida, Michigan State and Stanford.
Here's how our basketball recruiting experts see his recruitment playing out.
