Five-star Safety Getting Attention from UF

Harbor City (CA) Nathaniel Narbonne is home to the nation's No. 3 ranked safety according to Scout.com. At 5-10 and 190-pounds, Sean Parker is getting offers from the elite teams in college football.

"The first thing that I do is take it all in and do my research," Sean Parker said. "I want to have fun with it for a little bit but there will come a time to break my schools down and start getting my top teams. It's been a real good experience so far. I just want to prove to people that I can play my position and cover people. I want to work hard in the weight room getting bigger and stronger and make myself the best player that I can and get ready for that next level."

One team drawing interest from Parker is the defending national champs, the University of Florida.

"Coach White has been to see me and we have a real good relationship," Parker said. "I have talked to him over the phone and we have good relations. He was telling me that I would be a great fit for the University of Florida and they would be a great fit for me and he thinks I am a hell of a player. We also have talked about going out there on an official visit at some point in the future. Right now I am looking at everyone that is looking at me and weighing all of my options. I am not in a rush to make a decision because I am still a junior and have all the time in the world to make this decision. It will be a long time before I make my decision."

With some of the nation's top safeties committed to Florida already - Matt Elam (nation's top safety), Jonathan Dowling (nation's No. 5 ranked safety), and Jordan Haden (nation's No. 15 ranked safety) - it's hard to imagine Parker wanting to travel 3,000 miles to deal with that level of competition.

West Coast Recruiting Expert Brandon Huffman on Sean Parker

Parker is the best, most physical safety in the West. He's the kind of guy you don't want to see when the ball is coming over the middle. Won't always show great in a combine, because of the physical nature of being safety, but put the pads on, and you avoid him. Has gotten bigger in the offseason to show true safety size. Can play either strong or free, but is projected to play strong because of his ability to stuff the run.
