Top-5 player for 2013 - and MSU's only remaining major target in that class - Jabari Parker will finally end the speculation and announce his college decision on December 20th at 3pm at his school. The 6-foot-8 forward from Simeon Career Academy in Chicago is widely believed to be choosing between Duke and Michigan State, though his "official" final five includes those schools plus Florida, BYU and Stanford.

Parker's nomination by Sports Illustrated as the best high school player since LeBron James may have been premature, but his decision is expected to be a game-changer for whichever school it is.

In an interview with USA Today (which appears to have been taken down), Parker's father, Sonny, indicated that Jabari has not revealed his choice to him, but he speculates that it's between Duke and MSU.
