Here's another video of Parker with his brother. I say he looks pretty good and could end up being a diamond in the rough type player

After watching video of Parker, I've noticed his strengths are good positioning around the basket. He has a variety of post moves. He's a stretch 4 as he can hit the 3. His defensive success may be due to him being physically imposing at the high school level as many of his blocks appear to be against much smaller players. I see his major weakness as being his need to add more productive weight so he gains additional athleticism. It'll also help him not get pushed around as much at the college level. If he stays near his current weight, he'll often play against guys that outweigh him by 20-50 lbs. at his height or taller.

Nice to see an offer to out to another PF, but this kid seems to have to sit for a bit to develop.
He could be a possible redshirt candidate, and hopefully will be ready after sitting a year.

Either way, Miller is still trying to get this roster in order.
It’s like our 2009 class all over again..

Was going to say, his brother has great handles and seems pretty athletic.

Now that I think about it, Parker is EXACTLY the type of recruit we need to bring in.
Someone that we know is going to be with the program 4-5 years, be a 3-4 year contributor, whether he starts or comes off the bench to solidify a spot in the rotation for 3-4 years.
Parker could be the cornerstone of maintaining the prestige of the program.

To Parker, I apologize for selling you short.
Come to Arizona, Rounds will easily put about 15-20lbs on you, and be ready to hit the ground running when your number is called.
I would LOVE for you to come to Arizona!

Seems like Miller usually has one guy on the bench who is marinating for future use, Braun could be that player next year. Looks like he can develop down the line and be a nice system player.
