Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne High School was home to one of the best safety duos in the nation this year, featuring 2009 recruit Byron Moore and 2010 recruit Sean Parker. Moore committed to USC on Signing Day and now Pete Carroll has extended an offer to his teammate and good friend Sean Parker.

"I just got on the phone and Pete Carroll was telling me how he liked me and offered me a scholarship," Parker said. "From that point on, I have been very happy."

Parker, who is a member of Scout.com's National 100, already received offers from Penn State and Georgia earlier this week and topped it off with an offer from the hometown Trojans.

"It's an honor to know that one of the biggest programs is interested in you," Parker said of the Trojans. "That makes your confidence go up.

"It's an honor and I really feel blessed."

Parker said he is intrigued by the idea of teaming up with his close friend Byron Moore once again, but will take his time and let the recruiting process play out.

"I am happy that I have that option to choose from because Byron is like a brother to me," he said. "It would be fun to play with him in college and kick it with him for the next four years."

With scholarship offers from USC, Notre Dame, Penn State, Georgia, Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona State, Stanford, Washington State, Colorado and Minnesota, Parker has plenty options and is looking to attend a school with strong academics as well as a good football program.

"First and foremost, I am looking for a school with good academics," Parker explained. "That comes before football because football isn't guaranteed, but your academics are."

The Narbonne star has been rumored to be looking to leave the state for college but said he doesn't have a preference at this time.

"It's 50/50 right now because my mind isn't made up yet," Parker said. "I am just looking at all my options and staying open for a while."

The hard-hitting defensive back recorded 68 tackles, 5 interceptions, 2 fumble recoveries and 2 sacks in his junior season, while leading Narbonne to the City Section Co-Championship.

Parker will attend USC's Junior Day this Saturday.
