Georgia Basketball Recruiting: Tony Parker Moves Announcement To Monday

The circus surrounding highly touted Atlanta area recruit Tony Parker will continue through the weekend, as the 6-foot-9 280 lb. prospect from Miller Grove High School has pushed his official announcement back to Monday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

UCLA is thought to be the front-runner for Parker's services - Parker's former Atlanta-area AAU coach Korey McCray is now an assistant with the team - although the AJC also quoted Parker's high school coach that Parker had not already signed with the Bruins:

"That’s something that got started at [an all-star game] … it doesn’t have any legs to it," Miller Grove High School coach Sharman White told the AJC on Sunday.

"Tony has not committed yet. That’s the best and only way I can put it."

Along with the Bruins, Parker's known finalists are Duke, Georgia, Kansas and Ohio State, which makes three of this year's Final Four teams.
