Jayhawks make Parker's latest cut

Posted Jul 11, 2012

Wendesday, the nation's top prospect in the Class of 2013 - Chicago Simeon's Jabari Parker - revealed a list of colleges trimmed to 10, and the Kansas Jayhawks were one of the programs to make the cut.

The 6-foot-7, 215-pound small forward - who recently maintained the top spot in the Scout.com 2013 rankings - revealed his list via Twitter.

"(Kentucky), Stanford, Michigan State, Kansas, Florida, Duke, BYU, Georgetown, DePaul, UNC," Jabari Parker wrote. "No order."

Yesterday, Scout.com national recruiting analyst Evan Daniels broke down why Parker was rated No. 1 overall in the country.

"Parker's advanced skill set, size and scoring ability won out," he said. "White he hasn't shot the ball as well as he can this spring, his ability to score at the rim, defend, rebound and his improvement on the block all stand out."
