Lavelle Parker, a 6-foot-2, 170-pound prospect out of Lee County High School in Leesburg, GA, has already received scholarship offers from several of the top programs in the southeast. "Right now, I have offers from Florida State, Tennessee, Clemson and Troy. And Georgia Tech, Auburn and Alabama are showing interest," Parker told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

When asked if he has any early favorites, Parker responded, "Number one would be Clemson. Then Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee.

"Clemson has good facilities and everything. I've been there before. D'Vontrey and I went there for the South Carolina game last year. We had front row seats. It was a good time."

Parker and his talented Lee County teammate D'Vontrey Richardson both have Clemson as their top school and they both plan to play together at the next level.

"We do want to play together," said Parker. "We definitely want to go to the same school."

The Lee County standout had a very impressive junior season. "I had 49 catches for 940 yards. I had 10 touchdowns receiving and two rushing touchdowns. I also had one kickoff return for a touchdown.

"I probably get most of my catches on six to eight yard stops, or post patterns. I am good at beating the defensive back off the line."

Parker's summertime camp plans are already starting to take shape.

"D'Vontrey and I are invited to the Addidas camp on March 19. Today I got a letter for the Nike camp on May 1st. I know this summer I am going to the combine at Clemson and also to Alabama. I believe we are going to Troy for a 7-on-7."

Parker also plans to make an early commitment so he can get the pressure off before his senior season.

"D'Vontrey and I are sitting down now trying to pick two dominant schools where we can both play. We want to be ready by the summer to make a decision. That way we don't have to worry about it during our senior year," said Parker.
