Not sure a comp for him but I know Ohio St want him badly.  They had 3 assistants at one of his recent games.   IU wants him badly as well.   Big 10 battle for a recruit they both badly want 

Well at one time or another, both IU and OSU wanted Joey Brunk!     :)

So he’s the same height as Trayce, and looks bigger in the shoulders

That’s pretty much the prototype frame for a young post player. The kid’ll carry 250-260 in college easily.

He switched back to a non-IU uniform Twitter profile pic this morning. 

Still...

 

Exactly, I wouldn't read too much into it either way since BB recruits are more volatile than crypto currencies, but it was a bold statement right after releasing a 'top 3.'

Sporting a school's apparel immediately following a visit isn't that unusual.  Imagine we'll see him wearing Buckeye following that visit and something from WVU following that visit.  Kind of a way to say Thank You.

 

He visited Ohio State for a game in December and did no such thing. 

Also, posting a picture in the uniform of the team he visited is very common. Changing the profile pic? Never seen that before.

Maybe it's just an awkward tech moment by him, but still.

Synopsis of his visit at  https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/2023-center-austin-parks-enjoys-iu-basketball-gameday-vibe-looking-at-early-spring-officials/?fbclid=IwAR3hSroaNHOdYYOiwltdFZ74uQvfYD6BytQ05dID-f8Ix9cBk6S9DzTNG6c

After the game Indiana drove home to Parks he is a priority recruiting target in the high school junior class.  “Coach Woodson brought the entire staff into a conference room and made it clear to Austin how important he was to Indiana,” Meisler said.


I guess maybe it’s better Booker couldn’t make it for that meeting. 
 

Awwwwkwaaarrrdd.

Last  night on the road at Lima Shawnee (9-4) it was the Austin Parks spectacular as he singlehandedly defeated Lima Shawnee scoring 29 pts. in a 57-24 St. Mary's (6-6) win.  He was 12-14 FG; 5-7 FT; 11 reb; 1 asst; 2 stl; 1 blk; 1 TO.  Virtually every one of Parks' shots was either a layup or a dunk.

Last night St. Mary's  Memorial (7-6) knocked off previously unbeaten Upper Scioto Valley (13-1) 53-35.   It was like seeing a completely different SMM team on the floor.  They didn't make careless TOs, they defended and they shot the ball reasonably well.  Parks probably played no more than 25 min. due to foul trouble.  SMM led throughout but iced the game with a 14-4 run over the last 3:30 of the game.

Parks finished with 12 pts. on 4-6 FG; 4-5 FT; 7 reb; 4 asst; 1 stl; 0 blk; 2 TO.  He actually attempted 2 jump shots making one of them and showed a nice little left handed jump hook.  He didn't try to force his way to the basket and made some very nice passes to cutters for easy  layups.
