2016 Intro: Kwe Parker

Kwe Parker, a 2016 guard out of North Carolina, is one guard prospect that high major coaches are already tracking.

2016 guard Kwe Parker is a gifted athlete.

In fact, you won't find many freshman guards that possess the type of leaping ability this 6-foot-2 guard has and he had it on full display at the Knoxvegas Heat event last weekend.

Playing with a talented group of guys on the Karolina Diamonds, Parker made plays at the rim, had a handful of highlight reels dunks and worked in catch and shoot three-pointers.

"I can shoot," Parker said when asked to describe his game. "I can take it to the rim and I jump high obviously."

Although just a freshman, Parker already has a number of high major schools interested. North Carolina State, North Carolina, Kansas, Wake Forest, Alabama, Virginia Tech, Duke and Virginia have all reached out to Parker's camp.

This past fall he even stopped by North Carolina State for an unofficial visit and it made quite an impression on him.

"I went to N.C. State," Parker said. "I went to one of their games on an unofficial visit. It was pretty straight. I liked it a lot. It's probably where I will go. It's close to home and it's a good program."

"We went all around campus," he added. "We went to the gym and the football game and stuff like that."

Parker, a standout at Fayetteville (N.C.) Trinity Christian, said he's hoping to visit Duke in the near future.

"I was happy when they called," Parker said. "They were one of the first ones."

Parker and the Karolina Diamonds will start the live period in Pittsburgh at the Hoop Group's Pitt Jam Fest.
