Parker is headed to the SEC

Throughout the recruiting process Dai-Jon Parker proved to be one of the best poker players in the class. The Alpharetta (Ga.) Milton High School guard kept his college leanings very close to the very leading up to his final announcement which was made on Friday evening.

As one of the premier scorers in the entire 2011 class, the Milton High School guard was one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the country. After a long recruiting battle Parker was able to narrow down his choices to Georgia, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Rhode Island, and Vanderbilt.

According to sources, Parker will pick Vanderbilt.

The Commodores made Parker their top priority in this class from the very beginning, and after tracking him during the month of July it paid off with the big commitment.

The four-star guard who currently ranks as the No. 42 player in the prospect in the class is a key pickup for the Commodores. Parker becomes the third player to commit to Vanderbilt in the 2011 class. He joins point guard Kedren Johnson and power forward Shelby Moats.
