Sincere Parker leaves East for Arizona prep school

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) East junior Sincere Parker surprised stateline basketball fans with a post to social media about his transfer to an Arizona prep school.

The NIC-10's leading scorer told 23 News that he will be playing for AZ Compass Prep School in Chandler, AZ next year because he believes it will help him "get to the next level."

E-Rabs head coach Roy Sackmaster said he was unaware of the move and never spoke to Parker about it, but there are no hard feelings.

"I can't fault Sincere or his parents or anyone who is around him making those decisions," said Sackmaster. "If they feel it's a better opportunity for him to go out and to showcase those talents, and it's going to be better for his future, then I'm all for it and wish him the best of luck."
