Below are notes and analysis courtesy of Scout.com Southeastern Regional Analyst Chad Simmons regarding 2010 Beaufort High (SC) LB Justin Parker from viewing his junior and sophomore highlight videos.
- Love how he plays north-south. Very good down hill guy.
- Can work on his lateral movement
- Good striker, drives his body through opponents when making the tackle
- Takes fairly good angles, but can improve on that a little
- Love how he keeps his feet moving and never settles… Always easy for him to attack the ball when bouncing on his feet
- Very good closing speed
- Did not let too many offensive linemen get their hands on him, but I can see he needs to work on his hands a little more. Needs to make sure he gets to them before they get to him so they cannot engage
