The SportsXchange

Forward Jabari Parker, the nation's No. 1-ranked senior out of Simeon Career Academy, has added the University Connecticut to the list of schools he's considering, giving Parker 11 possible destinations, his father told ESPN.com.

In a 10-school list provided in July, Parker included BYU, DePaul, Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, North Carolina and Stanford.

New Huskies coach Kevin Ollie, who replaced longtime coach Jim Calhoun, plans to visit Parker's home in Chicago next week.

"It was Jabari's decision," his father, Sonny Parker, said. "He's picking all the schools for the home visits. He's talked to Coach Calhoun previously before. That's one of the schools that showed some interest to him. He's had conversations with them previously. Of course, coach Kevin Ollie came in, and (Jabari) wanted them for a home visit."

Michigan State coach Tom Izzo has an in-home visit scheduled for Thursday, with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski scheduled for Friday.

Stanford, North Carolina ace scheduled to arrive next week, while BYU, DePaul, Florida and Kansas have already visited.
