Tony Parker, one of Kentucky’s remaining targets in next year’s recruiting class, will announce his college decision at the McDonald’s All American game next month according to this report from Adam Zagoria. Parker’s father told Zagoria that his son would be choosing between Kansas, UCLA, Duke, Ohio State, Memphis and Georgia at the game March 28th. That would seem to mean that Kentucky is out of the mix for the Georgia big man, who visited Kansas over the weekend. He was at the Kansas-Missouri game along with fellow Kentucky target Shabazz Muhammad, and the possibility of both ending up at UCLA has been widely discussed. Parker is also close with UCLA commit Kyle Anderson and his father said that the Bruins are “definitely high on the list.” Kansas’ recent history of producing NBA big men also makes them an intriguing option for Parker, according to his dad.
Parker is Scout’s #20 overall player and #9 center in 2012, but Kentucky still has options for big men in the class with Nerlens Noel and Anthony Bennett and either would likely vault UK’s class to the top of the national rankings. The final dominoes in the class are about to start falling, and we won’t have to wait much longer to see which of them fall Kentucky’s way.
