Parker inks with Washington

Word out of southern California began to leak late Tuesday evening that Narbonne (Harbor City, Ca.) S Sean Parker was leaning heavily toward committing to the Huskies and on Wednesday morning the talented safety prospect became one of the most celebrated players to ink his name on a Washington letter-of-intent when he announced his decision on ESPNU at 7:15 a.m.

Parker had his choice of schools with over 20 offers to his name, but as of late December it appeared to be a battle between three schools - California, USC and Michigan.

However, as time passed, Parker appeared to become mesmerized by what was going on at Washington and took a visit to Montlake last weekend and was hosted by his friend and former teammate Tim Tucker who was a freshman linebacker for the Huskies last season.

As we moved closer to signing day, word began to leak out that Washington was indeed a major player for Parker's services and on Wednesday morning he made the call on ESPNU's Recruiting Show.

"I'll be attending the University of Washington," were the words Parker spoke as he put the Washington hat on and added why he chose the Huskies. "The up and rising program that they are, the family atmosphere and the beautiful city of Seattle."

Parker was a three-year starter for the Gauchos and was one of the hardest-hitting safeties available this year. He was named the MVP of his team after leading Narbonne to their second-straight L.A. City Championship appearance, receiving First-Team All-City, First-Team All-L.A. Times and First-Team All-Marine League honors after an impressive senior campaign.

Besides being a great football player, Parker also gets it done in the classroom, posting a 3.8 GPA.
