Parker Witt played his first season at linebacker this season. While he was previously a defensive end, he made a good showing as and outside linebacker.
“This season I played outside linebacker which was very new because I played defensive end,” Witt said. “I think I played good this season. It definitely would have been better if I had more time to learn the position, but I did good given the circumstances.”
Part of what made him effective at linebacker despite his inexperience was a combination of his intangibles and his athleticism.
“I would describe myself as a hustle player,” he said. “I’m going to push myself until I’m the best player on the team at my position. That’s just how I am. I want to be the best.
“My strengths are my speed, quickness and strength. I’m a hustle player. I make a lot of the plays I make just because I go 100-percen all of the time,” Witt continued.
All these factors play into why schools are interested in the 6-foot-2, 225-pounder. And also why Missouri State is now hinting at interest.
“I’ve heard most from Arkansas tech, Ouachita Baptist, Henderson State and I’ve heard some from Central Arkansas,” he said.
And what about the Bears?
And could a visit be in the works?
“I want to visit every school who is interested in me and see what they have to offer. So I can see why I would choose that school,” he finished.
