Miller Grove high school in Lithonia, GA is the reigning 4-A State champion and boasts many fine players including Tech sophomore guard Mfon Udofia. This week they vaulted into USA Today's #3 slot in the nation after dispatching the standing 5A champions in the state, Milton High School in a 10-point win. There is plenty of talent at Miller Grove, including 6-8, 260 pound junior Tony Parker.

Tony Parker holds an offer from Georgia Tech among many offers from some of the top programs in the country. He was just recently ranked as the 39th player in the country by Miller Grove has started the season on a 5-0 run with Parker leading the way. Through five games Parker has averaged 19.5 points per game, 14 rebounds, and 3.3 blocks.

The victory over Milton added fuel to the fire that Parker and his Miller Grove teammates have one of the top programs in the state. "We were confident going into the game so it wasn't a surprise." Parker is making sure his teammates stay humble and hungry.

Parker led his team to another big win over S.W. Dekalb following their win over Milton. The S.W. Dekalb team featured two junior stars in Shaq Goodwin and Jordan Price. "We play the games one at a time and we don't want to get ahead of ourselves."

In between games, Parker had a chance to keep an eye on the Georgia Tech- Georgia game played earlier in the week. "It was a good game and probably shouldn't have been that close," said Parker. "Tech did what they were expected to do but Georgia snuck away with the win when Tech had some problems."

The recruitment of Tony Parker is moving along without many changes. "I'm still hearing from the same schools including Georgia Tech." Parker keeps in touch with Tech coaches Paul Hewitt and Daryl LaBarrie. Don't look for Parker to take any visits during the season. He's concentrating on winning games for Miller Grove.

Tony suffered an injury earlier in the summer but has made a full recovery. He and his teammates will be playing in some upcoming tournaments against some top talent but names and teams are not an issue with Tony. "We will value every game and play hard every time out." Top Stories
