On Tuesday evening, the roster for the United States U-17 team was announced.
It it headlined by the nation’s top recruit in the Class of 2013, Sports Illustrated’s coverboy Jabari Parker. Joining him on the team is high school teammate Kendrick Nunn, meaning that Simeon High School is probably going to have a pretty good season in Chicago in 2013.
There are six rising seniors on the roster and six rising juniors. Chicago actually has three players on the roster, as Class of 2014 recruit Jahlil Okafor made it as well. California and Florida both have two players on the roster, but Dakari Johnson, who attends Monteverde Academy in Florida, is a New York native.
