Kansas Basketball Recruiting: Jabari Parker's Family Limiting Media Access This Summer

Top basketball recruit Jabari Parker's family will limit media access to their son this summer in an effort to allow their son to be a kid and not get overwhelmed before his senior season begins.

"Basketball never stops, so we're getting ready to shut it down for him," Parker's father, Sonny, said. "He just wants to continue to be a kid, watch cartoons, hang out with friends and everything.

As the nation's top junior recruit, Parker has already experienced an unbelievable amount of media requests including book, movie and documentary requests. He is routinely followed where ever he goes and his family is looking to shield him from some of that before the scrutiny really cranks up as his senior year begins.

Parker will be playing with Team USA's U17 squad in Lithuania later this summer.
