BYU is still "a serious contender" to land prep basketball superstar Jabari Parker, according to espn.com's Andy Katz.

Katz reports that Parker made an unofficial recruiting visit to BYU last Thursday and met with coach Dave Rose.

"Parker, who is Mormon, has made multiple unofficial visits to various schools," Katz writes. "The 6-foot-8 forward out of Simeon High in Chicago has a laundry list of program that would take him in a second: BYU, DePaul, Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, North Carolina and Stanford. But getting Parker on campus for the Cougars is still a major coup. The Cougars have quite a weekend ahead after the football team blasted Washington State in its home opener Thursday: Point guard Nick Emery and center Eric Mika, committed 2013 top-100 players out of Highland (Utah) Lone Peak High, are making official visits.

Former BYU receiver Austin Collie, who recently sustained another concussion, could play in the Indianapolis Colts' season-opener this weekend, according to the Indianapolis Star.
