Parker Talks Bulldog Camp

Mississippi State got their June camp sessions underway on Tuesday. The lone 2016 verbal commitment in attendance was DeSoto Central offensive lineman Dareun Parker. Parker was one of the most impressive prospects of the close to 80 participants during the day's drills. As the summer workouts begin, Parker is solid with the Bulldogs and ready push towards a state championship this fall.

"Camp went really good," Parker said. "This was like my fifth or sixth time working with Coach (John) Hevesy. He treated me a little different this time.

"He is a very good coach. He knows what he's doing and he works hard. There was a lot of competition out here."

Since his commitment to Mississippi State, Parker has seen most other programs back off of him. The talented big man reports that his recruitment for all intents and purposes is over.

"I am still solid," Parker said. "I am not talking with any other schools. I just love all of the facilities and coaches."

The Bulldogs return a talented team this fall and Parker believes the team can do some big things again this year.

"I think it's going to be a great team," said Parker of the 2015 Bulldogs. "I am excited for the season."

Parker has more than just one team to feel good about this fall. The DeSoto Central Jaguars are expected to be one of the top teams in Mississippi's 6A North Classification.

Before the Jags take the field, Parker is expected to be back in Starkville for the Mississippi State Big Dawg Camp July 17th.
