Simeon Career Academy (Chicago) forward Jabari Parker, the nation's No. 1-ranked senior, cut his list to five schools on Friday, and it includes BYU, Duke, Florida, Michigan State and Stanford.
Parker originally released a list of 10 schools he was considering in July, and it included DePaul, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina. Of that list, Georgetown and Kentucky did not make in-home visits. Connecticut wasn't on his first list but was also allowed a home visit.
Parker will now set up official visits to all five schools and is expected to commit in November. He's scheduled to visit Duke on Oct. 27 and Florida on Nov. 2.
"He thought about it and looked at the programs. That's the five he had," Simeon coach Robert Smith said Friday. "It took him a long time to find. Everyone was really good, but he had to make a decision. He really respected everyone recruiting him and wanted to thank them for their time. He had to pick five and those are the five he wanted to look at. He knew he couldn't make everyone happy.
