DEC. 9, 2007 - KYLE PARKER WEEK 17 ENTRY
We lost a tough one Friday night. We lost in overtime. We scored with no time left to take it to overtime. We got the ball with 1:20 seconds left and drove 80 yards to tie with a touchdown. Then we turned it over in overtime and lost the game.
I had a pretty good game except that last interception. I threw for over 80 yards.
I was a little concerned early in the week when I saw something about coach Bowden being offered the Arkansas job. The next day it was all cleared up and coach Bowden was staying.
I think it is pretty cool that he has that nice extension. I feel confident that he will be there while I am at Clemson.
I was able to make my decision this week about enrolling early. Right now I think I am going to enroll early. Everything is setup for me to come. I haven't signed anything yet, but I am planning to come if nothing changes.
Coach Bowden and coach Swinney are coming in for dinner tonight. We are cooking some food and they are going to come by the house for dinner.
They are pretty excited about me coming in early. I am going to take my official visit next weekend. When I am up for the official visit they are going to show me a schedule so I can see how I can split my time between baseball and spring practice.
It is pretty cool to think that I will be playing college baseball soon. I will play catcher and they will move me around some. They want me to hit. They may use me some at DH.
I am excited to get up to Clemson. I am probably going to room with Spencer Benton. He is coming in early also. I have talked with him some. We stayed together at camp last summer also. He is coming in for an official visit next weekend also.
My parents are very supportive. I am going to spend a lot of time with my friends and family the next few weeks.
I have talked some with Jamie. I know coach Swinney came by to see him the other day. I think he is going to announce on the ESPN All-star game.
