Program features Parker, the 2012 Mr. Basketball, on and off the court.

He’s the best prep basketball player in Illinois, and one of the most sought-after college recruits in the country, but there’s more to Simeon Career Academy’s Jabari Parker.

Coming this January to CN100, The Comcast Network, you’ll get to see and hear about Parker the person through interviews with family, coaches, teammates and, of course, Parker. There’s also no shortage of Parker highlights to illustrate how, in 2012, he became the first underclassmen to be named Illinois’ Mr. Basketball.
