Parker, a 6-foot-1, 170 pound athlete who also plays basketball and runs track for his school, chose Duke over interest from Tennessee. Duke began recruiting him several months ago, and the relationship he built with the coaches was too much to turn down.
"They played a big role in my decision, and I just had a great experience when I was there and everything felt right."
As a junior Parker averaged 44.7 yards per kick in 49 attempts. He is projected to redshirt in 2015.
He was primarily recruited by Coach Roper.
