Parker Discusses USC Visit

Sean Parker is very familiar with the USC football program, as he has spent several afternoons watching practice at Howard Jones Field, has a former teammate, Byron Moore, on the team and a handful of friends already committed in the 2010 class, but with the recent departure of Pete Carroll he took an official visit this past weekend hoping to learn more about the new coaching staff.

Sean Parker is very familiar with the USC football program, as he has spent several afternoons watching practice at Howard Jones Field, has a former teammate, Byron Moore, on the team and a handful of friends already committed in the 2010 class, but with the recent departure of Pete Carroll he took an official visit this past weekend hoping to learn more about the new coaching staff.

On the visit Parker was hosted by his close friend Byron Moore Jr., who is a freshman cornerback for the Trojans, and the two had a good time with the other recruits and current USC players on campus.

"Sean told me his trip went well, his host was Byron Jr. and he enjoyed hanging out with the guys," Narbonne assistant football coach Byron Moore Sr. said.

Parker was rated as the no.6 safety in 2010 class in the final edition of the Scout300 rankings that were released earlier this week.

The 5-10, 188-pound athlete was also named the MVP of his team after leading Narbonne High School to their second-straight L.A. City Championship appearance. He received First-Team All-City, First-Team All-L.A. Times and First-Team All-Marine League honors after an impressive senior campaign.

Parker is one of the hardest hitting defensive backs in high school football and showed great football instincts during the week of practice at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.

The four-star recruit is also a standout in the classroom and said the highlight of his visit to USC was the chance to tour and learn more about the Marshall School of Business.

"He really liked the Marshall School of Business," Moore Sr. said. "One of the things that Sean likes is the connections that Marshall School of Business has in the business community."

While on the visit, Parker was also able to sit down with new USC defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, a man that he greatly respects.

"He said meeting Monte Kiffin was probably the second highlight of the trip. When he was thinking about taking a trip to Tennessee, Monte was one of the reasons he thought about visiting there," Moore Sr. said. "He's the guy that actually came up with the Tampa 2 defense and a really respected guy. All of the kids want to meet him.

"Sean got to meet Monte and he did some stuff on the board for him too. He showed him some things and went over the different defensive packages."

With the recruiting process nearly finished, Parker is now focused on Michigan, USC, Cal and Washington.

He plans to take an official visit to Seattle to learn more about the Washington Huskies before making his college choice on National Signing Day.

"He said he still wants more time to really think over his options," Moore Sr. said.

Parker's announcement will take place at Narbonne High School and will be shown live on ESPN.
