Duke offers Jabari Parker. Article is premium.
@ReggieRankin Jabari Parker (IL) is at Duke for an unofficial visit for the Maryland game. about 5 hours ago
A 6'6, 210 lb SF, Most definitely going to add weight and grow. 6th best player in the 2013 recruiting class. Would be a great addition.
I had a couple of glimpses of him and he didn't look overwhelmingly excited but not many recruits seem to show emotion during their visits. does anyone have anyword on how the visit went?
They also cheered as the game got tight and Duke mounted a comeback, with Murphy fist pumping and clapping more a the game wore on. Murphy was joined by 2013 prospect Jabari Parker who was hosted and shown about by Duke Assistant Coach, Nate James.
The Cameron Crazies twice cheered “Alex Murphy, come to Duke,” and that brought a smile and look from Murphy.
Early returns are that both visits went well.

Jabari Parker's list of potential schools:
Duke, Illinois, Michigan State, Washington State and Kansas
According to this Insider article, we'll be visiting him next week:
He's #3 on ESPN's Terrific 25 (and the #1 center)
"He may already be in the best shot-blocker in the country with absolutely uncanny physical gifts and defensive instincts. With a rapidly expanding offensive game, and solid work ethic and good court demeanor, the sky is absolutely the limit."
From all the positive evaluations of his game, Noel could be the dominant big man that everyone is so eager to land
Rivals updated their 2013 rankings, Julius randle is 2, Jabari Parker is 4, Nerlens Noel is 5 and Nate britt is 33. do any insiders know why Jabari Parker is listed as having high interest in Washington and only medium in duke?
Here's an interview of the #1 player in the class of 2013. Has some really nice things to say about Duke.
A) This was not a "mercy hire" by K because Jeff needed something to do until he finds another opening.
B) Jeff is too committed to use Duke as a "filler job" while he looks other places. He wouldn't have taken this position if he just wanted to find a head coach position elsewhere.
C) It sounds like Randle has a lot more interest in Duke than just Capel being there.
Beejay Anya, a 6'7, 251lbs Center got a call from Duke. Picture shows his wingspan infront of a garage door. Anyone want to take a shot at estimating that?
