Parker On a Roll

Feb. 12 -- The Pittsburg (Calif.) four-star cornerback, Jordan Parker, has been racking up offers lately but it was his first offer that still stands out to him...

Pittsburg (Calif.) cornerback Jordan Parker (6-0, 185) has been one of the fastest risers out West in the past couple of weeks.

After a strong junior season, his film made the rounds and now the four-star is closing in on double-digit offers.

“It’s been really exciting,” said Parker. “I’ve been working for it. It’s been a lot of fun getting these offers.”

Utah and California offered this week, pushing Parker up to nine offers.

“It was nice to hear about the Cal offer. Coach (Greg) Burns offered. I had been waiting for a Cal offer for a while so that was big for me,” said Parker. “Coach (Sharrieff) Shah offered me from Utah too.”

Last month, Parker attended USC’s Junior Day and got an offer from the Trojans while down there.

“It was really nice down there at USC,” said Parker. “I really liked it there. I had been talking mostly with Coach (Keith) Heyward but I also talked to Coach Sark (Steve Sarkisian) too and he offered me. They’re both good coaches and I like them both a lot.”

Parker is planning to visit Arizona State and Oregon in the coming weeks too, the Sun Devils having offered and Parker hopeful the Ducks will follow suit.

“I’m going to Oregon and hopefully they offer,” said Parker. “That would be real big.”

Parker will visit both schools with his teammate, four-star Shurod Thompson.

“We’re definitely going to be a package deal,” said Parker.

As for schools recruiting him the hardest, it’s the school that offered him first.

UCLA is definitely recruiting me the hardest,” said Parker. “Coach Angus (McClure) came by a bunch and we’re trying to get down there too for an unofficial visit. I talk with Coach Meat (Demetrice Martin) a lot and he’s a real nice coach and I talk to Coach (Jim) Mora too and he’s real great.”

Parker said he’s still wide-open and wont rush a decision.

“I’m going to take all of my visits and then decide,” said Parker. “I don’t have a top five, I’m still pretty wide open.”

This spring, Parker will play 7v7 for Kenion Training.
