"I made my commitment to Notre Dame," Parris said. "I spoke to coach Weis."
It's always nice to beat your arch-rival, in anything. Notre Dame won out over Michigan for Parris's services.
As the story grows, Parris was a Michigan fan growing up, but that's not the story he gave.
"Not really," he said. "I was just always Michigan when I played Play Station."
When it comes to the Parris family as whole, that is a totally different story.
"They're all ND fans," Parris commented.
