First of all, Preston Parker said the hurricane hit his area pretty hard but his house is ok. The only inconvenience is that they are still without power. His 6-2 Atlantic High team may not play another game for two weeks.
"We can't even go to school right now because the powers out." Parker added, "they say we might play this weekend but it may be another week or so."
He also said if power is restored this week they could play the game next Tuesday or Wednesday.
Whenever they resume play Parker hopes to get right back on track. In eight games this season he has 34 catches for 824 yards and 10 scores. He has also returned a punt for a touchdown and thrown for three more, bringing his season total to 14.
As for where he wants to play next year, Parker gave me his top 5:
Miami- "I love the program and they produce stars."
FSU- "I like the tradition and how they run the program, including the off-season training."
NC State- "They have a lot of Florida kids in their program."
Minnesota-"I like everything about the school and the program up there."
USC-"They haven't offered yet, but if they do they would move right up to about two or three on the list."
Parker has not made an official visit to any school but he said he is in the middle of planning a couple. However, he has made two unofficial visits to Miami to see them play South Florida and Colorado.
The feeling I got from Preston is that if USC comes in late they will most likely move up to the number one spot rather than two or three like he claims. However, the offer is yet to be seen, so it looks to be another Canes vs. Noles battle over this prized wide-out.
