St. Joe's Parker chooses Towson

Timajh Parker, a 6-7 senior forward for St. Joseph in Trumbull, has orally committed to play basketball at Towson next season, as first reported in the Connecticut Post.

Parker, a Register All-State selection last season, helped lead the Cadets to the Class LL state championship and the No. 2 spot in the poll's final ranking.

Speaking of St. Joes, it's been rumored for months that current assistant coach Charles Clemons will replace the legendary Charlie Bentley as coach at Harding. That final decision should be made soon.
