Jabari Parker opts for Duke

Jabari Parker picks Duke.

The No. 2 recruit of the class of 2013 ended months of speculation when he announced he will sign the Blue Devils Thursday afternoon. Parker made his decision live from his Chicago high school, Simeon Career Academy, on ESPNU.

Parker’s commitment was a major win for Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski, who has had success landing his top recruiting targets in recent years.

Kyrie Irving was the No. 3 recruit in the Class of 2010 and Austin Rivers was also ranked third by ESPN in the class of 2011. Both were in Durham for one year before becoming first round draft picks.
