He was afraid that if he lived in Michigan, people would confuse him with Rob Parker.
"Look at this. An entire generation of Cinderellas, and there's no glass slipper coming." -- Mother in ALMOST FAMOUS
Yeah. I guess we will have to settle for having 2 incoming freshman 5-stars (Casey Hill and Chris Walker) and 1 5-star tranfer (DFS)
Sucks to be us.....................
Win something with them. You had some studs in Boynton and Beal too and all those teams did was choke their faces off in back to back regional finals.
I guess we'll have to settle for the all the 5 stars and McDAAs that are already on our team.
Parker is not a program changing recruit, he is a good player but he is not going to carry a team to a title as a freshman like Carmelo Anthony. He will prob average 9 and 4 as a freshman. It's always nice to win these high profile recruiting battles, but it's not like the guy is from Michigan. As an Illinois fan it sucks not to have even been in the picture for a Simeon guy, but that's what happens when you let Bruce Weber lead your program for nearly a decade.

Hopefully they'll avoid another NIT flameout...unlike several of your recent teams.
We didn't even get mentioned in this article.
If your not first your last
Parker is exactly the type of player and student Izzo wants. This is a huge loss for Izzo simply because of how much Parker was a perfect fit. I have no problem losing recruits to Duke. Coach K is a stand-up coach from a school with a solid academic reputation. I wish Parker the best and I hope he has an amazing career despite being surrounded by McDonalds All Americans at every position.
If you don't know a contraction, you're a dumb fuck. Lick my balls.
Earlier JP had said that "relationships matter". An SI article in another thread explained that Coach K sold him on Xs and Os. His public statement indicated he was looking to who could get him the best leverage in the NBA. To me these explanations show where his real values are.
Yes Jabari, relationships matter. I sincerely wish you success in life and that coach K gives you what you are looking for, he certainly has the credentials. But more so I hope you are able to live true to that first value that made me want you on my team in the first place.
How dare a top high school player chooses a program he feels will help him transition best to the NBA!
And you know what, I'm sick of high school kids picking which college they want to go to based on the program they want to major in.
? you shouldnt bother to post. Major in ? wtf... kid has one year of college, max...... kudos to him and all the best etc... but you are a class
No problem with this. I just feel I was sucked in by the whole relationships thing thinking here was a young man with his head screwed on right. I sincerely hope he realizes he was on to something.
This thread was a lot more fun before we knew where he was going. Can we just pretend that we don't already know and go back to what it used to be like in here?
Sounds good... (clears throat)
So you guys all realize he's going to Duke, right?
Are you hammered? Did you see what I was responding?
EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING YET OUTSIDE OF JABARI! WHY ARE YOU SO STUPID????
We just don't beat schools like Kansas, Duke, North Carolina or Kentucky on a heads up, even competition. We would have lost Gary Harris to Kentucky if Calipari wasn't late to the party and even then, it was close.
We'll see tomorrow, but I have a feeling this kid is going to go the way of Dexter Strickland, they always do.
Lol. Why yes. Yes I am hammered.
Would love to play Duke and have Dawson go up against Parker...
I bought some batteries, but they weren't included... so I had to buy them again. What do batteries run on?
Whatever man. Bonars or something.
