While rumors have been swirling that Jabari Parker has narrowed his college decision down to Duke and Michigan State, it appears an SEC school is still in the mix.

University of Florida head coach Billy Donovan was on hand to watch Simeon's victory over Carver Monday night, despite Parker not playing due to an injury.

Parker wasn't the only reason Donovan was on hand to watch the Wolverines.

@Prepsbullseye tweeted that Simeon sophomore forward D.J. Williams received a scholarship offer from Florida and Donovan.

Following the game, Parker mentioned that he had a "home visit" scheduled which could be the reason why Donovan was in town.

The Wolverines star will announce his decision Thursday, Dec. 20 and it's a moment he's been dreaming about.

"It will be a pretty good relief," Parker said. "It's what I've been dreaming about from the beginning. It's a time where I know what school I want to pick and hopefully it will be the right fit for me and get all the attention away from me."

Parker had struggled in his last two games for the Wolverines (3-1), but hopes to return to the court for the Pontiac Holiday tournament on Dec. 27.

"I wanted to rest throughout the week," Parker said. "My foot was a little sore because it's not used to the pounding, but in due time I'll be there."
