The top ranked recruit in the nation in the class of 2013 has officially called it quits for the summer. Jabari Parker, who is highly regarded and is all but a shoe in for the NBA Draft in a couple years, seems to have thought the heel injury that he suffered earlier this summer was bad enough that it needed to rest for the rest of the summer. His father said that he probably shouldn’t have been playing in the Under 17 FIBA World Championships for Team USA earlier this month because he was playing through pain. Now that the World Championships are over, Parker has decided to rest his heel for the rest of the summer and has scheduled an MRI on his right heel for later this week. It is not expected that surgery will be needed to fix the heel injury, and Parker is hopeful that he can return to high school basketball when his senior season rolls around. Everyone knows that Parker was an incredible athlete before this injury, but if this injury ends up requiring surgery, his play could be affected. Parker is currently entertaining offers and considering the following schools: BYU, DePaul, Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, North Carolina, and Stanford.
Take a look at what Parker could do before this injury.
