Jabari Parker might wait to sign letter of intent



CHICAGO (AP) — Prep star Jabari Parker might wait until the spring to sign his letter of intent, although he probably will commit to a school before he makes it official.

Sonny Parker says his son might not have enough time to decide during the early signing period next month.

Jabari Parker, who plays for Chicago’s Simeon Career Academy, is scheduled to make five official visits, starting this weekend with Michigan State. Trips to Duke (Oct. 26-28), Florida (Nov. 2-4), Stanford (Nov. 9-11) and Brigham Young later in November are also on tap.

Sonny Parker says his son might “go on his first two visits and say, ‘Hey, this is where I want to go.'”

If Jabari Parker doesn’t sign during the early period from Nov. 14-21, he would likely commit before the spring signing period.
