On the heels of Kyle Anderson’s commitment to UCLA Monday night comes still more good new for the Bruins.
Tony Parker, a skilled 6-foot-9, 250-pound forward from Lithonia (Ga.) Miller Grove, will visit UCLA the weekend of Sept. 29.
“Yes,” he confirmed to SNY.tv by text.
Parker is coming off a recent visit to Ohio State and is also considering Memphis, Duke and Georgetown.
He has taken three unofficials to Memphis and may visit Duke the weekend of Oct. 29.
“He’s got probably five, if not six, schools that he’s stil looking at,” said Norm Parker, Tony’s AAU coach with the Georgia Stars. “He’ll make his five visits without a doubt. He’s going to take his time.”
UCLA already has Anderson, point guard Dominic Artis of Findlay Prep and wing Jordan Adams of Oak Hill committed, and they remain in the hunt for shooting guard Shabazz Muhammad, the consensus No. 1 player in the Class of 2012.
As first reported at FiveStarBasketball.com, Anderson and Muhammad are talking about combining at UCLA.
