Stanford in, UW out on Jabari Parker’s list

Jabari Parker, who many consider the No. 1 prospect in 2013, released his top 10 schools via Twitter and Washington didn’t make the cut.

It should come as no surprise Kentucky, Michigan State, Duke and North Carolina made the list. BYU is also something of a no-brainer considering Parker is LDS and has made at least one unofficial visit to BYU.
He lives in Chicago, which partially explains why DePaul is on the list. Still the Blue Demons would have to be considered a long shot.
Kansas, Florida and Georgetown are powerhouse programs, but each could also be handicapped as underdogs in the Parker sweepstakes because there’s no obvious ties to the 6-8 phenom.
The most surprising aspect about Parker’s tweet is the inclusion of Stanford and the absence of Washington. It was believed the Huskies had developed a relationship with Parker – particularly his family members. While the odds didn’t favor UW, many believed he would keep the Huskies in the hunt a little longer.
He’s expected to make a decision in November.
