Pumped

The summer keeps getting better for Clemson verbal commitment Kyle Parker, who received some very good news Tuesday night. The prize recruit talks with CUTigers.com about his opportunity to compete against the best quarterbacks in the nation, his opportunity to play in front of one of Clemson's baseball coaches and much more in this recruiting update.

Tuesday night Bartram Trail standout Kyle Parker found out that he had been selected to participate in the Elite 11 camp with the top quarterbacks in the country.

"I found out last night," he said. "I was pumped. It is a once in a life time chance. My dad is real excited as well."

Later this month Parker will fly out to California to compete with the best quarterbacks in the nation.

"I think I will be going out to California on July 23rd. I will be out there for three or four days," said Parker.

The two sport star spent June splitting time between football and baseball.

"For about three weeks I was hard core football. I went to the Clemson camp, then I went out to Vegas and then did a lot of seven on seven. The last few weeks I have been focusing on baseball," said Parker.

One of Parker's goals for the summer was to play in front of a member of the Clemson baseball staff.

"I just got done with a baseball tournament. I got a chance to play for one of the Clemson coaches. He said I could definitely have a chance to play for the Tigers. I had a grand slam and a double when he saw me. He was pretty excited," said Parker.

After a busy month of football and baseball it is time for a little vacation.

"I am going to take a break now. We are going on vacation. We are in Gulf Shores, Alabama right now," stated Parker.

The Bartram Trail standout continues to work hard to convince top running back Jamie Harper to join him at Clemson.

"Actually I talked to Jamie about two weeks ago and had him call coach Swinney. I am looking for a chance to bring him up there. I may try to stop by Clemson in the next two to three weeks. Jamie's dad said he wants to come up for the Florida State game," said Parker.

Last weekend Kyle and his family celebrated his teammate's commitment to Clemson.

"We just had a big party at the house Sunday for Xavier," he said. "My mom cooked some ribs and stuff. I know Xavier and his mom plan to get up there soon. They may come with me if his mom can come then. She has a pretty busy schedule."
