Given your handle, I figured it was obvious; he would come to Cal for the same reasons Furd made his final list. Unless Furd has an inside connection I'm not aware of. Plus, we have a potential college HOF coach with NBA experience. Cal has made inroad recruiting players from Chicago in the past.
It's moot at this point b/c he committed to Duke. I only posted here b/c it been reported that MM doesn't recruit elite blue chip players b/c he perceived them as 1-n-done; Parker is not the case and MM should have got after him hard considering we need his skill.
