TERRANCE PARKS, QB, 6'3, 215, 4.7, LUFKIN, TEXAS:
Terrance is a super athlete that wants to be recruited as a quarterback, however most colleges view Parks as an athlete that could play any number of positions.
Parks is entering his third year as a starter and will enter his second year as a quarterback. As a sophomore Parks started at tight end where caught three passes, but graded out at 90 percent as a blocker. Last season he started the year at wide receiver, but he played a little tight end before moving to quarterback. Parks caught 19 passes for 358 yards and five touchdowns. Parks primarily ran the ball at QB and finished with two more touchdowns on the season.
"We are going to throw the ball this year and I will get a chance to prove that I can throw the ball," said Parks. "I realize that schools are recruiting me to play a number of positions and that is OK with me, but I would like a shot at quarterback. However, if a school wants to move me and believes that is the best situation for me, then I will move and be happy about it."
Parks can bench 230 pounds, squats 375 and is the starting shooting guard in hoops and will bring a 20 ppg average into his senior season. Parks was the district MVP following his sophomore year.
Parks attended the Texas A&M summer camp and worked on his QB skills. West Virginia is the only school to offer Parks at this point, but he expects that to change soon.
"I am very interested in Oklahoma, Texas A&M and TCU as well," said Parks. "I know the most about Texas A&M, but Oklahoma and TCU are two other schools that I want to check out. OU has great tradition and they are a great program. TCU has done some positive things the past couple of years."
"Oklahoma is recruiting me as a receiver, while TCU is recruiting me as a quarterback. Texas A&M wants me as a tight end/receiver, which is where West Virginia wants me to play as well. There is no question that I like Oklahoma the best right now and I will just have to wait and see what they say in the future."
Parks is still looking to qualify.
