CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Friday's Prep Star of the Week was an easy choice: Chicago basketball sensation Jabari Parker of Simeon Career Academy.

The whole college basketball world was watching Thursday, as Illinois' reigning Mr. Basketball – and the No. 2 ranked senior in the country - announced where he would go to college next year.

The finalists were BYU, Duke, Florida, Michigan State and Stanford. He chose Duke, the alma mater of Good Day Chicago's Dawn Hasbrouck.

Congratulations to Jabari Parker, his proud parents, his encouraging coaches and the Simeon Career Academy community for this great accomplishment and honor.
