    Scouting Report

    When you watch Parrish play, it is exciting. He makes plays on both sides of the ball and that is because of his quickness, his athleticism, his attitude, and his natural instincts.

    His future is at cornerback, but he could really be used as a punt return man as well in Athens. When he is at corner, but plays bigger than his 5-foot-9 frame. He has above average length, he is very physical , and he has great quickness. He has controlled feet, he plays under control, and he does a good job tracking the ball.

    His size may limit him some and he is not that 6-foot corner many look for, but do not let that fool you on his ability. He plays with great confidence, a little swagger, and he believes he can cover anyone.

    He is a sound tackler, he has great ball skills, and as he refines his tools as a true corner, watch out. He is No. 190 overall now on Scout and he is a little under-ranked, maybe under-appreciated.

    Parrish is a versatile athlete who plays quarterback and defensive back for his team and plays with that south Georgia toughness. Scout thinks he will see the field in some way very early in his collegiate career.
