Kevin Brockway of the Gainesville Sun reports via Twitter that he's been told Jabari Parker is down to Duke and Florida. That would be very surprising (and potentially good for the Gators), since most think he's down to Duke and Michigan State.
Kevin Brockway: Told that Jabari Parker is down to Duke and Florida. He'll make his announcement tomorrow afternoon at 3.

whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhatttttttttttttt?? i dunno brockway got the in on a chi town kid...not buying
Gator bball expert opinion on this?
If it was UF Ferd/Bullis/etc would probably know by now and probably would have let us know.
OHHHHH LET"S DOOOOO ITTTT
ORRRAAANNGGEEE ANNNNDDD BLLUUUUEE ITTT
Ohhh let's doooo it
ooorrrannngeeee and bluuueee it
It's not just Brockway, I've seen a growing sentiment that Florida's not out of this one. Still think it's unlikely, but you never know.
I'll wait to one of our normal bball insiders before I get excited. Brockway is terrible
bullis where you at?
I live in Chicago know a couple guys who coach AAU (not his team) and I'm unfortunately hearing Duke. Lets hope they are wrong.
Why would Jabari not want to team up with Kasey and Chris?
And play in Florida? Get out of the cold.
Makes a lot of sense.
But Duke is a powerhouse.
Lol it's funny... When you Google J. Parker there is no mention of UF. All Duke and Mich St. It would be awesome if he picked the good guys... I don't expect it, but I don't think any one expected a final two for UF either. I guess you never know, if the report is true UF is in the top two for a reason.
I'm very skeptical.
@Gatorman90: @gatorhoops Mike Adamle @nbcchicago just said a Tribune informal pole of Simeon teammates of J Parker feel its UF. Let's hope.
This would be a monster coup for Florida if it happens.
Jason Jordan @JayJayUSATODAY Polled 10 players here at the #cityofpalms on where they thought Jabari Parker was headed. Interesting responses. Story tomorrow...
What responses would possibly be "interesting?" Hm...
This would be one of the biggest recruiting upsets in a while if he picked UF.
I will check tomorrow for more info but all I know is that as of last week we hadn't stopped recruiting him...which means our coaches at least felt it was worth while to stay in touch with him.
Might be nothing...

Is the announcement gonna be on tv?
Duke usually wins these battles
And that's a first down!
Sure would be nice but like most I'm not holding my breath. Billy just visited so let's hope he did his thing.
Announcement on espnu at 4. Billy had in home Monday night. Duke tues and MSU last night. Nobody realy knows where he is going. Izzo left house last not knowing what Jabari would do. Last thing Izzo said was well if you don't pick MSU I still want to keep our relationship. That tells me he is worried. I thought Jabari would pick MSU. There is a lot of Buzz that Florida may pull this off. Billy has done a phenomenal job recruiting Jabari. But as of late last night no staff had been informed yet. Will know very soon. Go Gators.
The difference this time is that UFs squad next year will be far better than Dukes
My buddy just hit with a text he claims is a good source and is now saying MSU. Again lets hope he wrong. Mean Streets is a big time AAU program so if anyone is in know it would be them. If I remember correctly his teammate Nunn plays for them.
All reports were that Izzo was in an amazing mood last night after the visit, so I wouldn't read too much into that.
This is the bottom line: nobody knows where he's going - and anyone that claims to have an inside source or a "feeling" - has literally no idea what they're talking about or is trying to draw attention to themselves.
There are no "sources" on Jabari. He's been amazingly tight lipped and nobody has an ounce of info regarding his decision. As a Spartan, I place as much value on that text as somebody claiming they know Jabari's cousin's roomate's friend and heard that it was Duke.
Not trying to be a jerk about it, but just stating facts.
Either way he will he will be a great pickup whomever he chooses.
