Parker (6-foot-4, 245 pounds) committed to Penn State in June, days after his official visit. The Central Phenix (AL) High School star stayed committed to Penn State for almost two months before re-opening his recruitment.
So where will he end up? All four of Parker’s 247Sports crystal ball projections have him picking Clemson.
In an interview with On3Sports, Parker noted his relationship with Penn State defensive line coach John Scott Jr.
”Me and coach Scott still have a great bond,” he said, “and communication is daily with the staff.”
Of the other three schools, Parker said Tennessee is “my hometown,” Clemson “has been there from the start” and noted his relationship with Texas A&M defensive line coach Elijah Robinson, who played and coached at Penn State.
If Parker re-commits to Penn State, he’ll be the 21st player in the 2023 class and join Jameial Lyons, a four-star from Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia, as an Edge commit. Parker would also be the second player to de-commit and then re-commit to Penn State in this cycle.
Mathias “Mega” Barnwell, a four-star ATH from Riverbend High School in Fredericksburg, Virginia, committed to Penn State in June of 2020, de-committed in January 2021 and re-committed that September.
