Fr., Duke

OK, so he’s not a true shooting guard. But this is where we’d put Parker, and even at 6-8, 225 pounds, it’s where he may end up playing in the NBA. With all the hype that surrounded Andrew Wiggins, it’s Parker who has emerged as the nation’s most impressive freshman.

He’s averaging 19.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game, and has shown the crunch-time chops and big game drive that will make him a stud at the next level. Parker put on a show in his individual battle with Wiggins early in the season, putting up 27 points and 9 boards. He also rebounded from a mid-season wall with an absurd 29 and 16 boards against Boston College on February 8.

You know that Jabari has some big-time performances in him come March, and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if he took over a game or two in the NCAA Tournament.


Honorable Mentions: Nick Johnson, Jr., Arizona; Sean Kilpatrick, Sr., Cincinnati
