08:30 AM ET 07.05 | Chicago Simeon's Jabari Parker, widely considered the nation's No. 1 basketball prospect, is fighting off a charge from a pair of Texans. The nation's Nos. 2 and 3 players, respectively, are power forward Julius Randle from Plano (Texas) Prestonwood and 6-foot-5 point guard Andrew Harrison of Fort Bend (Texas) Travis. And both made strong plays for the top spot in the post-spring/pre-July rankings, which were released Tuesday. ... Still Parker -- who is in Lithuania competing with USA Basketball's national 17-and-under team -- remains atop the 2013 rankings because of his all-around skill and versatility rolled into a 6-foot-8 package. "He knows that he has a lot of work and he has a target on his back," Parker's father, Sonny, told Rivals.com.

QUOTE(#3):

Hey Texas guys, will either or both sign with the horns? The two texas kids.

Beats me. FJJ probably knows. The first plays at a private school and I'm not sure of the competition level they play. The other one should be good....there are a lot of good kids that come from that Fort Bend area. Lots!

As for UTx...don't have a clue. Texas universities don't do a good job of keeping hoops talent in the state...i.e Darron Williams as a recent example and Shaq as a oldie.
