Parker named to USA Today All-American Team

Jabari Parker should probably get used to this.
USA Today released its 10-man Preseason American Family Insurance All-USA Basketball Team today, and heading the list was the Simeon forward.
It's just one of many preseason All-American lists Parker can expect his name to be on in the coming months, leading up to his senior season with the Wolverines.
Parker narrowed his list to five schools in October, with official visits set up to each: Stanford, Florida, BYU, Duke and Michigan State.
Also on the list was 6-foot-10 center Jahlil Okafor from Whitney Young. Okafor was named the MVP at the FIBA U-17 World Championships this summer while Parker missed most of the tournament with an ailing foot.
Rounding out the list was: Aaron Gordon, Andrew Harrison (Kentucky), Aaron Harrison (Kentucky), Kasey Hill (Florida), Tyus Jones, Julius Randle, Noah Vonleh and Andrew Wiggins.
