LB Justin Parker profile
The Clemson coaching staff is just 48 hours removed from the ACC Championship, but in that short period of time major progress is already being made on the recruiting front.
And nowhere was that evident more than Monday evening when defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks visited with the nation's No. 10 middle linebacker - Justin Parker.
"It was a great visit having Coach Steele stop by," Parker told CUTigers.com. "And having Coach Brooks there was a plus. They came to my school today and watched me workout for about a hour.
"It was great just having my Mom, brother, and uncle there and they really liked what they
had to say about Clemson."
Parker, who has received scholarship offers from as far away as LSU and Nebraska was also impressed with how he could be potentially used in Tigertown.
"They basically were telling me how they would love to have me in Clemson to be a guy they can move around," he said.
Parker will next welcome in Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson as well as South Carolina assistant Shane Beamer later this week.
And he also confirmed he will definitely go through with an official visit to Clemson, saying, "I will be taking my official on
the weekend of the [Jan] 8th."
Parker recorded over 140 total tackles, including seven sacks and 12 tackles for loss this season.
His top three schools remain (in order) South Carolina, Clemson and LSU.
He lists South Carolina "slightly" above Clemson and the present time.
The Clemson coaching staff is looking to add one more linebacker in its 2010 recruiting class with commitments already in place from MLB Jake Nicolopulos, the nation's No. 28 middle linebacker, as well as Ricardo Chaney, the nation's No. 68 outside linebacker.
The Tigers also have a verbal commitment from Vic Beasley, who is ranked as Scout.com's No. 32 outside linebacker, but he's likely to play on the offensive side of the ball at tight end at Clemson.
