Dai-Jon Parker Announcement


2011 four-star shooting guard Dai-Jon Parker will announce his college decision tonight at 9:30 PM, after Milton's football game, and before their annual "Midnight Madness" basketball practice. Needless to say, he would be a HUGE get for the Dawgs, especially when you consider that we were shunned by Julian Royal and Nick Jacobs recently. With five-star guard Kentavious Caldwell already on board for 2011, this would make the future backcourt for the Dawgs quite formidable.

What is extremely weird to me about Parker are his final schools: Oregon State, Rhode Island, Georgia, Oklahoma State, and Vanderbilt. The Mountain Time Zone appears to be the only one he hasn't covered in the Continental United States. Anyway, I would surmise that Oregon State and Okey State aren't really in contention, and that the Dawgs are going to have to beat out the Commodores for this one. Considering we have probably recruited him harder than any other school and we haven't shown an ability to snag the Milton kids lately, it would be somewhat disappointing if he commits elsewhere.

Here is a little video of Parker in action:

Anyway, we will certainly keep you posted as the commitment ceremony commences (pardon the alliteration) so stay tuned....
