Scouting Anthony Parker-Boyd

Malvern (Pa.) Great Valley quarterback Anthony Parker-Boyd has committed to North Carolina. Learn more about his game with the following evaluation and analysis ...

Coach: "Athletic. If you talk to anyone that has ever seen him play, that is the first thing they are going to say. He went to a Valley Forge last spring and ran a 4.37. He's got a strong arm. He's been a leader for us in the locker room, in weight room, and on the field.

"I know North Carolina loves him as quarterback, because of his athletic ability and arm strength. They love him so much because they think he can be a [Darian Durant] type of kid." -- Great Valley HS coach Gary Phillips.

Analyst: "He's a nice, athletic quarterback. Very good speed. I thought he was going to play defensive back or wide receiver. He's probably, if you were going to compare him, a Ronald Curry type. Pretty strong - above average arm. He's a dual purpose QB. I think he throws better on the run - he's not a pocket-type quarterback. Some kids are better standing in the pocket, he's not that type of kid. He's better if you role him out and he can make his own play. Pennsylvania is loaded - in last year's class he'd be ranked higher, but this year since there are so many prospects in the state, he fell a little under the radar." -- Bob Lichtenfels,

Personal Evaluation: "As a freshman, I got some system carries at tailback. My sophomore year, I got some reps at quarterback, tailback and defensive back. My junior year is when I broke out. I played quarterback and defensive back. I'd like to play quarterback. I'm a leader and I like to have the ball in my hands. ... I was our conference champion in the 100-meter dash this past year." -- Anthony Parker-Boyd

Stats: His junior year totals were 1,815 yards and 15 touchdowns passing and 963 yards and 8 touchdowns on the ground. He had 5 interceptions on defense.
