There’s an opening in the secondary after three-year starter Damian Swann finished his college career.
“He had a big-time pick,” Richt said. “They both came down with it. The referees were trying to decide was it tie goes to offensive player? When they finally came out of it, Malkom had ripped it away so it was really a great play. He had another pass breakup as well.”
The 5-10, 194-pound Parrish last season had 17 tackles, including one for loss and a forced fumble last season after arriving from Brooks County High. He said he’s just now feeling comfortable in the secondary.
“I know a good bit of the plays,” he said, “so I’m flying around right now.”
“He’s physical, he’s smart,” senior Devin Bowman said. “He knows what’s going on. He’s going to bring something to the table this year.”
