B2G ELITE: UCLA commit visits USC next week

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Jordan Parker committed to the Bruins two months ago, but his interest in USC has not wavered.

Pittsburg (Calif.) four-star cornerback remains verbally committed to play at UCLA, but he also remains verbal committed to still camping and officially visiting USC.

Parker will be at both USC and UCLA next week keeping his recruitment status quo.

“I still talk with Coach (Keith) Heyward very often,” said Parker. “He keeps me on my toes, he keeps me up with everything. Me and him talk about how to handle things too and how to handle things in more of a life perspective.”

Parker intends to be at USC for the Rising Stars Camp next week, but he is still putting everything together and figuring out his itinerary with the Bruins Camp overlapping dates.

That stop won’t be his last on USC’s campus. Before signing day, Parker looks to take at least a couple of official visits to various programs. Some programs, like Arizona State, Parker needs to see more of.

However, he’s not returning to USC to discover more about the school or football team.

“I don’t have too many questions for USC,” said Parker. “Every time I get down there, if I have a question, it gets answered.”

With UCLA, Parker feels a strong sense of loyalty to the coaching staff.

“It’s how the coaching staff is,” said Parker. “They hit me up on a daily basis and just keep everything one hundred on their end and one hundred on my end. They better me as a man and mature me through this process.”

Parker states that while he may take visits to other schools, his commitment to UCLA is strong. So what will other schools have to do in order to sway him away from Westwood?

USC’s recruiting pitch is simple as it is direct.

“They ask me if I want to be the best, that’s the main pitch for USC,” said Parker. “Do I want to be the best and join the best program?

“Do I want to be with the best of everything, and go against the best every day in practice, and eventually get to the league? That’s their message.”
