Jabari Parker's a throwback with nary a fault to find

Jabari Parker doesn't drink, smoke and almost never swears. He and his parents can't recall the last time he was grounded -- and he doesn't object to being called a dork or a geek because of his clean-cut image. The 6-foot-8 Chicago native is the top-ranked player in the country, but has a similar even-keel, modest approach as another talented forward -- Kevin Durant. Parker holds a near-4.0 GPA. This kid almost seems too good to be true. There isn't much he can't do on the court either. (CBS Sports)
