Texas RB Likes Seven

Raider Power recently spoke with Richardson, Texas running back <b>Parrish Fisher</b> about his season and the schools he's currently looking at.

The Dallas Metroplex star-studded tailback, Parrish Fisher, has led his Pearce Mustangs to a 3-0 start. So far, he's racked up 547 yards for 5 touchdowns, averaging 182.3 yards per game.

Simply put, he's blowing it up in his final season as a prep.

Based on my scouting, the three-star prospect is a small, shifty back that possesses the ability to utilize his blockers and then use his elusiveness to get past defenders. Fisher not only possesses vision and speed, but he shows signs of explosiveness as he shoots through holes opened up by his offensive line.

Those attributes make him a prospect to keep an eye on and one has to wonder who might have the upper hand with regard to landing the talented runner or what his top five might look like.

But at this point, the nation's No. 30th-ranked RB claims to be "wide-open" and "doesn't have a top five."

That said, Fisher lists: Kansas State, Georgia Tech, Iowa, Colorado, Iowa State, Arizona and Texas Tech as his favorites. Every one of those favorites have offered the 5-9.5, 190 pounder, with the exception of Texas Tech.

Asked who's been showing the most interest, Fisher told RP, "Kansas State, Iowa and Georgia Tech."

Thoughts on the Red Raiders?

"I just started talking to Texas Tech and Coach Dykes," Fisher said. "I like them, but I don't know too much about them right now."

Currently ranked No. 90 on the Texas Top 100, Fisher's looking for a school with a great program, an offense that he can fit into and a university with good graduation rates.

Official Visit Agenda: At this point, the senior tailback has yet to select any schools. And that it'll be in the month of December before he'll decide which schools will earn the all-important official visits.

Fisher also said he's planning on taking all five of his official visits before making his college choice and that that decision should not be expected until sometime after the end of his football season.

Will the Red Raiders eventually offer the Pearce scat-back?

It's definitely a posssibility.
