Parker's 5th comes from Nebraska

Jenks high school (OK) defensive back received his fifth offer last night, this time from Nebraska.

Four offers is nice. Five is better.

Jenks high school (OK) 2014 defensive back prospect Steven Parker picked up his fifth offer yesterday, when the Nebraska Cornhuskers put a scholarship on the table.

"It kind of came out of nowhere. They have sent me letters and what not, sort of just the generic way teams recruit, but I got a message to call Terry Joseph, the Nebraska secondary coach, so I did," said Parker. "He told me he just wanted to let me know that I had a scholarship from Nebraska. I was pretty excited. I'm interested in any team that offers.

"I'm interested in any school that shows me interest. I'm not looking to make a decision anytime soon. I probably won't even cut schools until the end of the summer."

Parker is coming off a 50+ tackle season with three interceptions. With offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Alabama, and Tulsa besides Nebraska, Parker could end up being the No. 1 player in the Sooner State before it's all said and done.

"I don't know a whole lot about Nebraska at this point, but what I do know is when I watch them on TV, it seems like they have a pretty strong defense," said Parker. "It's a defense I have enjoyed watching over the years. It seems like they have put some cornerbacks and safeties in the league. That's not as big to me, but it stands out because their defense is pretty good."

Parker is 6-foot-2 and 185-pounds. It's unknown if Nebraska is interested in him as a safety or cornerback, but he's being recruited by multiple schools and both positions.
