Will Army offer Cedric Parker?

Cedric Parker is one of the top secondary prospects in the state of Arizona. Army, which needs to sign several defensive backs to replace numerous current players who will graduate after the 2010 season, has shown interest in the star Hamilton high school player but has yet to extend an offer. Parker already has an offer from one academy and is a good candidate to get an offer from West Point.

Cedric Parker says his knowledge and passion for the game of football are what make him a great player. Parker also claims that he is a sure tackler and excellent coverage guy, something the Army coaches are surely looking for.

Parker was all over the field as a junior picking up 56 tackles, 13 pass break ups and 3 interceptions last season. His exploits netted him all-region and all-state honors following the 2009 campaign.

Parker, who has offers from Air Force, New Mexico State and Idaho, hasn't heard from Army since early May. "I would like to hear more from Army," said the heady player from the desert. Parker would like it even more if West Point were to extend him an offer.

The 6-foot-tall Parker claims that his two favorites so far are Air Force and Stanford.

As for Air Force, Parker said he likes the benefits of the academy as well as the location of the school. The state of Arizona's northeastern corner touches the southwestern corner of Colorado. Although Chandler, Ariz. is over 800 miles from the Air Force Academy that's not far considering the vast expanse of the western states.

Excellent academics combined with good football are what attract Parker to Stanford. The Pac-10 school has yet to offer him but the future college player says the Cardinal coaches have discussed offering him during the upcoming season.
