Jabari Parker, Fr., Duke: Next » 1 of 14 « Prev
Parker has been as good as advertised for the Duke Blue Devils. He has shown great ability to knock down the outside jumper, although he has struggled with the three-ball as well as being able to get to the rim off the dribble. He has fit in seamlessly in the Duke system and is one of the big reasons why the Blue Devils are currently ranked No. 10 in the country.

Parker is averaging 22.1 points a game will shooting 54.8 percent from the field. Even with his recent difficulties with the three-point shot, he is still shooting 46.7 percent from distance. Free-throw shooting is where he has had the hardest time. He is shooting just 72.5 percent from the line in just under six attempts a game.

Parker is more than just a scorer, however. He is a great rebounder for his position and can stuff a stat sheet. In nine games, Parker is averaging 7.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.1 steals.

It will be fun to see which of these top players becomes NBA stars.

Where I am extremely interested in the upcoming draft, after perusing this list, I came away feeling a huge gap in the info area.....One stat which is important in the game of basketball, a stat which can't be enhanced with coaching, is height.......Yet this analysis didn't give the height (or weight) of a single one of these prospects.,,,Here are some stats about the ones I consider to be the top three:
Randle is 6'9" 225 PF.....Parker is 6'8" 220 SF...Wiggins is 6'7" 205 SF

I too, am disappointed this article didn't give the height, weight and position played.
