Jabari Parker, Simeon

They should have seen it coming!

The new NCAA rule which allows Division I college basketball coaches unlimited texts and phone calls has produced an immediate and interesting twist.

The nation's No. 1-ranked player, rising senior Jabari Parker of Simeon (Chicago, Ill.), has changed his phone number, according to Jody Demling of the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Demling tweeted, "Jabari Parker - the nation's top player - took the smart route. He changed his phone number this week. He said only one coach knew the number."

The 6-foot-8 Parker won't reveal who that lucky coach is. Demling doesn't believe it's John Calipari of Kentucky or Rick Pitino of Louisville.
