Three star shooting guard recruit Juwan Parker has verbally committed to the Georgia Bulldogs.

Shooting guard recruit Juwan Parker has announced that he will attend the University of Georgia to play basketball in 2013.

The three-star recruit chose Georgia over Memphis and Stanford, with Memphis previously thought to be his top choice. Parker made a verbal commitment, which is non-binding. Recruits can sign letters of intent during the early signing period in November.

The 6'4" guard from Tulsa, Oklahoma is a very capable scorer that can put up a lot of points very quickly. He has been working quite a bit on his mid-range game according to Scout.com, and like most players from high school, just needs to put a bit more weight on his frame.

Parker was the 2010-11 state player of the year. As a junior he averaged 20.5 points and 9.4 rebounds.

"My family has a good relationship with coach Kwanza and coach Fox, and Georgia has one of the best business schools in the country," Juwan Parker told the Tulsa World. "Coach Fox built a winner at Nevada and he's doing the same thing at Georgia. When I visited there, I felt very comfortable. I felt at home."
