Jabari Parker Nursing Right Foot Injury; Change in Rankings?

by July 25, 2012

With the last segment in the live recruiting period starting today and running until Sunday, college coaches will flock to major tournaments in Orlando and Las Vegas over the next few days to get one last look at some of the top talent in America. But with news that top ranked player Jabari Parker will be missing the rest of the live recruiting period as a result of a fractured right foot, will he still be holding the throne when it’s all done? Over the last few days, there’s been some debate on what effect this injury will have on the rankings. Julius Randle and Andrew Wiggins (a junior), two of the players that have been trailing Parker for the top spot in the rankings, will be playing this week and had great outings at the Nike Peach Jam last week. Parker’s father has made it clear that his son doesn’t care about where lands on the rankings, and with all the pressure that has been amounted on him, he probably shouldn’t.
