Jabari Parker, the No. 1 high school basketball recruit in the country, was in Provo last week on an unofficial visit to BYU, but the phone call coach Dave Rose received Sunday night was from a different prospect saying he would like to be a Cougar.
Luke Worthington, a 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward from Homestead High in Mequon, Wis., committed to Rose and has said he will sign a national letter of intent in November to play for BYU.
Worthington had offers from more than a half-dozen schools, but narrowed his list this summer to BYU, Davidson, Penn and Princeton. In recent days, the battle was between BYU and Davidson for his services.
