Where does Jabari Go?
Even his pops is in the dark ....
His top 5 are; BYU, Duke, Florida, Michigan State and Stanford. Thoughts?
The ESPN guys are believing that Duke is the choice. I have always believed Michigan State might be his destination. Will stick with Michigan State, though I am expecting to be wrong, lol.
If he were to choose BYU what type of impact do you think he would make?
I mean, they do lose Brandon Davies and while they got two top 100 recruits, looks like they might be going on their mission before going to school. Unless someone else is coming back from a mission that I do not know of, that makes them slightly limited at big man. They have Tyler Haws and Matt Carlino which would surely help. Nonetheless, I think they would be a tournament team like they are most seasons. He might put up bigger numbers than he would in other places, just do not think he would turn them into title contenders without some help in the post.
I just don't see any of the dark horse candidates (Stanford & BYU) getting the nod. That leaves Duke and Michigan State as the favorites.
Duke doesn't really have room on the roster for another 3/4 combo player. They have Alex Murphy and Amile Jefferson already on the roster. Rodney Hood will be eligible next season and they already have a wing commit coming in next season. That's four guys for one spot. Not to mention Josh Hairston is a PF who will see minutes.
he's going to go to Duke. I just see him going based off the strength that plumlee leaving curry leaving. Sulaimon a 2 guard. Jabari could slide in at the 3. Seems a solid perimeter. Plus with the conference merger next year he will have a chance to play on a bigger stage against better talent game in game out. M. state would be nice on paper depending what they have at the 4 and 5 next year but just don't see him going there
I strongly believe he is going to Duke or Stanford. Imagine if Jabari actually goes to Duke and Wiggins goes to FSU. The ACC will be winning for sure, two season games head to head and a potential ACC championship game. I hope they both end up in the same conference.
That or he goes to florida and wiggins goes to kentucky. I would love to see them play each other 3 times next year. I dont think they will have the carmelo vs lebron rivalry(it was a decent rivalry for their first 4 to 5 years) but if they could start it in college maybe it will carry over to the nba.
hes definatly going to duke. he fits there system well and he raved about coach k, and im a carolina fan. im hoping he lures wiggins to carolina. wiggins has been wanting to prove hes a better player than parker and could not do that this summer with parkers injury. what better way than the biggest rivalry in college basketball, north carolina vs duke.
What time will he make his announcement?
I had a gut feeling it was going to be Mich St. but now i think he'll end up in Duke.
Nothing rare. Every time i say someone is going somewhere i get stuffed with negs, only to find out i was right.
And they'll have Matt Jones too who likes like a very good shooter as well with an improved driving game.
Andre Dawkins will be back next year as well. Rodney Hood will be ready to go too.
Shooters galore. I wonder if they'll post Parker then and play inside out. They got a ton of wings but not enough inside presence.
My guess for the starting lineup is:
I'm seeing reports that he will pick Florida, MSU and also Duke its a toss-up
