The next big buzz words for college basketball beyond the NCAA wink-and-nod sell-out to one and done-ism are Jabari Parker, a 6’8”, 220-pound, 17-year-old hoops prodigy at Chicago’s Simeon Career Academy.
Across the board, Parker could be the next Anthony Davis.
According to an Associated Press story last week, Parker is a team man on the court, a solid kid off it, and part of a family that puts a premium on Bible study, with a “Put the Lord first” poster on his bedroom wall.
Perfect caliber player for Kentucky, right? Wrong.
