QB Kyle Parker Profile

Clemson quarterback commitment Kyle Parker had an outstanding baseball season for Bartram Trail (Fla.).

"We were 26-3," Parker told in a recent. "We lost in the playoffs. I was named the player of the year for our region. I finished the season batting .440."

Parker was not able to see the Tigers play in the ACC Tournament in Jacksonville because he was helping another football team from Alaska.

"Yeah I didn't get to go watch Clemson in the ACC tourney," he said. "My mom heads up an effort where we are helping a football team from Alaska. They have to play on gravel. They came down and went through a week of spring practice with us. We are raising money to give them a turf field. It is a neat story. You can find out more at"

Despite his attention to baseball, Parker has still be doing more than his fair share to help Clemson's recruiting efforts. Of course that begs the question, how does Parker feel about the Tigers' chances of landing his teammate Xavier Brewer?

"Actually I have a really good feeling about him," he said. "He just wants to get his mom and dad up there. I'm confident he will end up at Clemson."

And it doesn't stop there. The star quarterback is also recruiting top running back Jamie Harper for the Tigers.

"I don't really know about Jamie. I haven't had a chance to talk to him lately. A lot of big programs are jumping on him hard. I think he knows Clemson is a good situation for him to play early. Once he comes up and can see everything I think that will help," stated Parker.

Will the three Jacksonville standouts camp at Clemson together in June?

"We will probably be coming up for the second session of camp. I need to check with Xavier and Jamie Harper and make sure they are going," replied Parker.

Parker said he will also spend some time this summer playing baseball. "I will be playing for a travel baseball team. We will be playing in a couple of tournaments," said Parker. "But right now I am working out. I am trying to gain a few pounds this summer. Right now I am at about 190. I want to get up to around 205." Top Stories
