QB Kyle Parker Profile

Jacksonville native Kyle Parker traveled to Clemson last weekend along with his father and his talented teammate Xavier Brewer.

"It was a great visit," he said. "I always love it every time I go to Clemson. My goal this time was to get Xavier up there and try to convince him to go to Clemson."

How did Parker feel his teammate enjoyed the visit to Tigertown?

"He really liked it. I don't think he will have a decision any time soon. He wants to get his mother up there first. I think she will fall in love with it also. I think we have a great shot of getting him," replied Parker.

The two-sport star is having an outstanding baseball season for Bartram Trail.

"I am batting .475 right now. I have 37 RBI's and five homeruns on the season. I play anywhere in the infield. We finished the regular season 22-2. We start the district tournament on Monday," said Parker.

The prize recruit plans to play both sports for the Tigers.

"I am going to try to do both at Clemson," he said. "It will depend on how much playing time I think I have a chance to get. Some of it will depend on how Willy is doing."

There is another Florida standout that Parker is recruiting hard for Clemson.

"Jamie Harper is another one I am trying to get to Clemson. Clemson just offered him two weeks ago. I will see him soon at the Nike camp. My goal is to get both of them to go to Clemson with me," said Parker.

What is this future Tiger doing with his busy baseball schedule to keep in shape for football?

"I am throwing a few times a week. I am pretty much focused 100 percent on baseball right now. We start spring practice up here in a few weeks. We should be done with baseball by then," replied Parker.

Any summer camp plans are not clear, but Parker also said he may be back at Clemson in June. "I am not sure about camp," he added. "I have some baseball plans this summer also. I know coach Spence wants me to come up for camp so I will probably be there for one of the sessions."
