Former OU Coach Impacts Top NBA Prospect

On Monday, Duke Forward Jabari Parker accepted the Wayman Tisdale Award as the nation’s top freshman basketball player. Thursday he announced he would forego his sophomore season and enter the NBA draft.

Parker is a projected top 5 pick in the NBA draft. While he’s learned from Duke Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski, former Sooners Head Coach Jeff Capel has had an impact on Parker.

After Oklahoma, Capel went back to his alma mater to be on Coach K’s staff. Nate Feken shows us the affect Capel brought to Parker.
