The rich keep getting richer.
High-school standout Jabari Parker committed to Duke University on Thursday during an afternoon press conference call.
A 6-foot-8 forward from Simeon Career Academy, Parker selected the Blue Devils over BYU, Florida, Michigan State and Stanford.
Parker, the nation's No. 2 recruit, is Simeon's highest ranked since No. 5 Derrick Rose, who graduated in 2007, attended Memphis and became the No. 1 overall pick by the Chicago Bulls. Nick Anderson, Bobby Simmons and Ben Wilson are also among the players who have attended Simeon.
---The Western Athletic Conference will add the University of Texas-Pan American as its eighth member for the 2013-14 season.
The Broncos follow new members Chicago State, Grand Canyon University, Seattle and Cal-Bakersfield to the reformed Division I conference. The league will also include University of Idaho; New Mexico State University; and Utah Valley University.
The WAC lost its status as a Football Bowl Subdivision conference for 2013, stung by a mass exodus which included Fresno State and Boise State, formerly two of that league's top powers.
---Texas guard Myck Kabongo will be suspended by the NCAA for the remainder of the season, according a Yahoo! Sports report.
Kabongo hasn't played while the NCAA investigates whether he hired an agent, lied about whether he paid for a May workout and made Texas clear of his intentions to work out in Cleveland after his freshman season.
Yahoo! Sports first reported the punishable benefit when Kabongo worked out with Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, who is a fellow Canadian and former Texas player. He also worked out with trainer Jerry Powell, who is connected with LeBron James' agent, Rich Paul.
