Duke freshman forward Jabari Parker still doesn't know if he will forego his final three seasons of eligibility and declare for the NBA draft.

Most experts have Parker as a top-five pick should he declare. Parker has been outstanding this season for the fourth-ranked Blue Devils, leading the ACC in rebounding and averaging the second-most points per game in the conference.

"If I feel like there are things I could improve on or things I left, like during the season, then I will probably come back," Parker said, via the Associated Press.

"Saying that I didn't give it my all and that I have regrets, that I have to come back because I owe this program so much," he added. "A deciding factor is where I'm going to grow the most, whether it's in the NBA or even in college, the learning experiences that I need as far as (growing as) a basketball player."

Duke closes out its regular season this Saturday against North Carolina, a team that defeated the Blue Devils earlier this season.
