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.
Georgia added a new guard. Juwan Parker is on board with Mark Fox's team. He's a 2013er.— Dave Telep (@DaveTelep) August 19, 2012
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."
