On Thursday, December 20, 2012, Chicago’s most-heralded High School basketball player Jabari Parker (Simeon Career Academy) held a press conference after school to announce his college choice.
The event was covered by countless media outlets, including live on ESPNU.
Featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine, the 2011-12 Gatorade National Boys’ Basketball Player of the Year, 6’8, 17 year old superstar Jabari Parker has had a magical high school career (3 state titles and trying for 4th).
Parker also earned USA Basketball’s prestigious 2011 Male Athlete of the Year award, becoming the youngest player ever to earn that distinction.
