2017 3-star forward Parker Hazen committed to Valparaiso on Sunday over Ball State and IUPUI. Though not recruited by high-major programs, Hazen is listed as a three-star recruit on 247Sports. Hazen stands at 6-7 and weighs in at 205 pounds.
Hazen averaged 15.8 points per game and 6.6 rebounds per game at Columbia City High School in Indiana.
2017 forward Nana Akenten joins Hazen as the two commitments for Valparaiso’s 2017 recruiting class.
247Sports lists Hazen as the #305 2017 prospect nationally, and the #71 power forward in the class. Some consider Hazen to be a small forward, while others list him as a power forward, which makes Hazen a versatile player, who can, if needed, play shooting guard as well.
