3-star tight end set to visit Vandy
"When staff calls me I usually talk to Coach Rahne, but I hear from Coach Franklin and Coach Bankins. I've built a close relationship with the entire staff. There an up and coming program in the SEC that's bowl eligible for the second straight year. I wanted to go the weekend of the Tennessee, but I scheduled too late so I'm going on my official January 18th when they bring in all of their commits."
Parsons plans to take official visits to Ole Miss on November 24th and Cal-Berkeley on December 7th. Those two schools are considered the front-runners for the athletic tight end with Vanderbilt. He has taken unofficial visits to Arizona State, Nebraska, and Colorado.
"After my official visit to Vanderbilt," Parsons said, "I should be ready to make my decision. I didn't want [my recruiting] to go on this long. I think of myself as a lunch-pail-and-bucket type of guy who doesn't like to be the center of attention.
"I talk to my former teammate, Shane Callahan, who plays at Auburn, and he said you'll know it when you find the right place. What I'm looking for is a school with great academics in a nice college town. I'm looking at going into Business. Vanderbilt doesn't have a Business major, but do offer Entrepreneurship or Management which you can apply to business."
In ten games at Chaparral, Parsons had 45 receptions for 755 yards and seven touchdowns. He had four games with over 100 receiving yards. Parsons has started playing basketball, but will play in a post season All-Star game in Houston the week of December 26-31.
