Lance Parker commits to Vanderbilt

Lance Parker, a "sleeper" quaterback from Bryant High School in Arkansas has chosen to become a Commodore.

Vanderbilt has continued their good work this summer with a commitment from an Arkansas QB, Lance Parker (6-2/175/4.75, Bryant HS - Bryant, AR). Parker threw for over 2,500 yards and 21 touchdowns in Bryant High School's spread offense last year, and he will be counted on heavily to help lead a rebuilding team this year.

"We've got about 5 starters coming back on offense," said Parker, "and only 3 or 4 on defense. I may play a little free safety this year, but I'm mostly sticking to quarterback again."

"I committed to Vanderbilt this weekend, because I am looking for more than just football at the next level. It's a great school, and I'll get a great education. I think with the combination of the education I'll get, plus the chance to play in the SEC, it was the perfect fit for me."

Vanderbilt has gotten off to a tremendous start this year in recruiting, and Parker is a sleeper of a QB that will only get better as he matures physically. At 6-2 and 175 pounds, he has the frame to add some weight. "I had offers from some smaller D1 schools, and I think one of the reasons that more schools haven't offered yet, is because they want to see me get a little bigger in my senior year." Vanderbilt had seen enough potential to offer Parker a scholarship, and he is grateful for the opportunity to show what he can do.
