The 6-0, 170 pound prospect continues to pickup offers. "I have a few new offers. Oregon, Louisville, UAB and Alabama," Parker told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

When asked if the Tigers are still the leader, Parker responded, "No, I'm just looking around now. Things have opened up.

"I've gotten contact from a lot of other schools. I just want to see what the options are."

The prize recruit had planned to commit this summer, but the timing may have also changed. "I'm just waiting to see which school is the best one. I want to see who is the best school wise and in athletics. I don't know when I will be ready to make a decision," said Parker.

Who is recruiting the Georgia standout the hardest at this time? "I would say Troy. They said they want me to play football and run track. Alabama also said I could do track. I would like to do track as well if I can."

College coaches are filling the halls at Lee County High. "LSU came by on Friday. UAB also came of Friday. Ole Miss came on Thursday and Wake also came last week," added Parker.

Parker still expects to see the Clemson coaches at a practice. "Clemson is suppose to come see one of our spring practices. I still get a lot of mail from Clemson. They are still recruiting me hard," said the Georgia athlete.

How will Parker determine his next leader? "I will speak with my parents. We are all going to do it together. Academics will be the most important. I want to major in Business or Marketing."
