ESPNHS (ESPN High School) released their “18 Under 18″ List today, a compilation of “teen athletes who are doing remarkable things on the field, in the classroom and in their communities,” and hey, one of those names looks familiar. It’s Jabari Parker, the number one recruit in the 2013 class! Roll that beautiful highlight footage.
Parker, who has drawn comparisons to Carmelo Anthony and Paul Pierce, is considering the Cats along with Duke, North Carolina, Ohio State and Kansas. They say this in the video above, but you know Parker must be good if he was ranked above Nerlens Noel before Noel reclassified to 2012. Parker’s coach at Simeon HS, Robert Smith, said he “can be one of the best basketball players that ever lived,” which is high praise considering Smith has coached players like NBA MVP Derrick Rose, a Simeon alum. Cal traveled to Chicago to watch Parker play on February 12th, mere hours after returning from Nashville after beating Vandy. Parker recently told Michael O’Brian of the Chicago Sun-Times that he will take visits and narrow down his choices this summer before making a decision in the fall, although he may wait until the spring to sign.
Go get ‘em, Cal.
