2023 four-start defensive linemen Tomarrion Parker out of Central Phenix City High School in Phenix City, AL was named Penn State as one of his top five schools on his wish list. His top five choices are Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Ohio State, and the Nittany Lions.
Parker is 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds who played strong-side defensive end had 75 tackles (27 tackles for loss), 15 sacks, and three fumble recoveries for the Devils in 2021 where he was the driving force in Central-Phenix reaching the Alabama 7A state title game. He was selected to the 2020 Max Preps All-Sophomore team.
Parker is a prototypical athlete with the size and speed to contribute from day one at the college level. Scouts project him to be a stand-up pass rusher in a 3-4 defense, or being a 4-3 defensive end in the hand in the dirt. Scouts also believe that he is a smooth mover for his size that plays with good footwork and body control. He can be effective at the point of attack with his bull rush techniques.
Parker has already been selected to play in the 2023 All-American Bowl game, and by the 2022 football season, he can develop into one of the top prospects in the nation with elite programs already coveting his commitment.
