Wondering if the church's decision to lower the eligible mission age will influence Jabari's decision. I know that he is considering a mission, but will he now choose to go on a mission first and then look at schools afterwards?

Jabari could go on a mission and skip college altogether. Wouldn't recommend the skipping school part, though. Even one year can help shape a person's ability to better understand and function in the world. Earning millions is one thing. Keeping them another altogether.

With the changes announced in Conference to mission ages today, I was thinking the same thing as Rational. This change could very well remove college ball from Parker's future.
