Boudreaux blowing up

Have you heard of Parker Boudreaux? He has quietly put together one of the most impressive scholarship offer lists in the country...

Does Parker Boudreaux pass the eye-test? Yes.

But there is more to him than that. He is a very strong offensive lineman who can pave the way for running backs and help create a pocket for quarterbacks.

Purdue is the latest school to offer the 6-foot-4, 284 pound junior out of Orlando (Fla.) Bishop Moore. According to Boudreaux, that is offer No. 42.

"I feel blessed and I thank God everyday for this," Bourdreaux said about the scholarship offers rolling in. "I love everything about the recruiting process so far and I just keep working harder each day."

Marshall was first to offer Boudreaux in the spring. Exactly 15 weeks ago according to the four-star junior.

Between the Thundering Herd and the Boilermakers, plenty of others have put their name on Boudreaux' offer list.

"Miami, Penn State, Duke, Arkansas, Mississippi State, and Oklahoma State are some of the other offers. It has been pretty crazy. It has all happened so quickly."

No schools have jumped out to the lead yet for Boudreaux. He is taking his time and giving everyone a look.

"I am wide open right now. More schools keep coming at me, so I want to stay open. I will start narrowing things down at the end of the season."

Penn State held a camp at Stetson in Florida over the summer and Boudreaux attended that. He was impressed by the Penn State coaches and he will likely get up to Happy Valley for a big game this fall.

"I am going to Miami for the Florida State game and then to Penn State for the Ohio State game too. I may get to a few others, but I am not sure yet."

Two schools to keep an eye on are Florida and Texas A&M. The versatile lineman grew up following the Gators during Tim Tebow's career and his father, being from Louisiana, likes the Aggies.

Right now, Boudreaux is just worrying about his junior season, how he can help his team win, and recruiting will be there down the road.

He is more focused on becoming the best player he can be and showing coaches what he is all about in the trenches.

"Schools like my athletic ability for a guy my size," Boudreaux said. "I have pretty good feet, my technique has gotten better, and I am pretty strong too.

"I am focused on getting better each day. I work hard and that I am not really thinking about recruiting right now. The season is most important."
