Recruiting Scene: There really wasn’t much of a recruiting scene for Parham. He camped at State prior to his junior season and the Pack wasted no time extending an offer. Parham mulled the offer for a couple of months but ended his recruiting by committing to the Pack in November of 2014.
Why NC State? “I like how they play a lot of young talent. The guys that really sold me on it other than coach Doeren was coach Canada, he seemed to really have a strong interest in me. I like how it's really close to home plus I plan to major in Engineering."
Picked NC State Over: Old Dominion
Scouting Report: - Parham has great size and is a good athlete at quarterback. He has a strong arm and can make all throws. He has the ability to throw from the pocket and also does a nice job of throwing on the move. He shows good touch on the deep ball, but can also fit the ball into tight windows to move the chains. Parham has a big upside and his best football is ahead of him. -Scout recruiting analyst Michael Clark
