The No.1 basketball recruit, according to Scout.com, Jabari Parker has narrowed down the list of programs vying for his 2013 commitment to 10 schools. Wednesday evening, the 6'7" small forward from Simeon Vocational HS in Chicago revealed that select group via Twitter:

UK, Stanford, michigan state, Kansas, Florida, Duke, BYU, Georgetown, Depaul, UNC. No order.

Other programs of interest included Connecticut, Illinois, Louisville, Ohio State, Washington and Northwestern. But those programs have been written off for the time being.

According to reporter Adam Zagoria, Parker had a phone interview with SNY.tv that revealed more of his plans.

"I’m on a setback not making as much progress as I should be [cutting his list] but I’m looking to make my choice in November. I want to do it for me because I want to get it over with before the season starts," Parker said.

Parker also told SNY.tv that he plans to cut his list down to eight candidates during the summer.

There may be some competition for that No. 1 spot before the 2012-13 season finishes up, however, as Andrew Harrison and Julius Randle remain hot on his heels.

Whether or not he holds the top spot at the end doesn't matter. Jabari Parker is a prime-time scorer that will make a huge impact for one of these 10 teams in 2013.
