Tulsa Washington basketball standout Juwan Parker announced online that Memphis, Georgia and Stanford are his final three college choices, and he’ll commit on Aug. 19.

Parker, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard and a two-time selection to The Oklahoman’s Super 5 team, has more than 20 scholarship offers, including Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Tulsa.

He will announce his decision on the National Recruiting Spotlight blog, where he also revealed his final three choices right here.

Memphis and Georgia were among the first programs to offer Parker a scholarship, and Stanford joined the race late, because of the stringent academic standards at the school, according to Parker.

Parker has averaged a double-double over his last two seasons. His summer was cut short because of a toe injury that required surgery.
