Tony Parker recaps MDAA experience

One of the top remaining players in 2012, Georgia big man Tony Parker, spoke with TDD following the McDonald's game.

CHICAGO – As one of five uncommitted McDonald's All-Americans, Tony Parker still has a bit of something to play for. The five-star center talked to TDD as he gave his latest on his recruitment and his McDonald's week experience.

Tony Parker is nearing a decision. The Georgia native is currently down to Kansas, Ohio State, UCLA, and Duke.

"I'll probably make my decision in the month of April," Parker said. "I don't think I'll take anymore visits or anything else."

For the moment, Parker is focused on what he's looking for in a college.

"I'm talking a lot with my parents and trying to see what I want to do," Tony said. "I think I'm going to make a great decision and whatever school I'm going to is going to be a great atmosphere, a great school, and a great place to grow and become a man."

Tony still thinks very highly of Duke as he goes over each school.

"Duke is an all-time great school. Coach K is a great coach he's been doing it for a long time and he knows what he's doing," Parker said. "I've been hearing from them. The conversations have been good. They just call in to check on you."

As for the game itself, Tony enjoyed the McDonald's All-American week festivities in Chicago.

"It's been one of the best experiences of my life," Tony said. "To come out here with these great basketball players in such a prestigious event and having fun and playing with the guys that I've been playing with all summer on the same team and against them is great."

Parker finished with 10 points, seven rebounds and two blocks and enjoyed going head-to-head against the West's best big men while also playing with some of the best players in the country.

"It was a great game, a great experience; everybody had a lot of fun tonight," Parker said. "I got to play with some great guys like Amile Jefferson and Cameron Ridley and really play hard."
