College Basketball Recruiting: Tony Parker's Decision Day Arrives, UCLA New Favorite?

Tony Parker's college decision process has been a long winding road but that is really how it should be for a high school student that is making one of the biggest decisions of his life. Parker is scheduled to end the saga at around 4 p.m. ET today at Miller Grove High School.

Parker has played things really close to his chest over the last few weeks and there isn't a clear indication of what direction he may go. Parker still lists UCLA, Duke, Kansas, Ohio State, Memphis and Georgia as his finalists. Many believe it is now down to a decision between the hometown Bulldogs and the Bruins with Ohio State remaining as a dark horse candidate.

Recent reports indicate that Parker is being recruited hard by fellow recruits Shabazz Muhammad and Kyle Anderson to join them at UCLA. Parker's former AAU coach Korey McCray is currently an assistant coach with the Bruins as well.

While Georgia doesn't have the basketball pedigree of the other schools on Parker's list they do offer the convenience of staying close to home and the ability to rejoin two of his Miller Grove teammates. Parker would be one of the biggest recruits to ever sign with the program and would be given the opportunity to shine from the outset.
