    Parker enjoys Showcase

    Beaufort linebacker Justin Parker is the top linebacker in the state of South Carolina. He was on South Carolina's campus on Saturday for the Showcase camp and talked with TheBigSpur.com right after it was over.

    Parker has offers from South Carolina, Clemson, NC State, Maryland, Wake Forest, and is also getting heavy interest from Virginia Tech. He talked the Gamecock Showcase camp.

    "It was nice man," Parker said. "I enjoyed myself a lot. I went up against some of the best running backs around, Marcus Lattimore and some other guys. Some of the former players were helping me out. I know Casper and Jasper Brinkley was out there talking to me."

    He's visiting Clemson this weekend. Hopefully he doesn't commit.

    Gonna be tough to get him out of state, let alone halfway across the country.

    New Rivals update has him quoted as saying he'd like to get out here for a visit. I think we're a long way from being his #1, but it's great that we're still on his radar.

    More confirmation today. In-state programs Clemson and South Carolina are his co-number 1s... but he said Colorado is a school he wants to get out to for a visit. We were the only other program he mentioned for visits. Still a longshot, but... :thumbsup:

    Interesting. He seems to like us, has now mentioned us twice in interviews with other teams' sites. Hopefully he is interested in seeing something completely different from the South.

    He'll definitely see that with the Denver-Boulder area.

    No doubt. South Carolina Lowcountry is slightly different from the Front Range.

    If by "slightly" you mean "entirely", yes. :smile2:

    His top 4, in order:

    1. Clemson
    2. South Carolina
    3. NC State
    4. Colorado

    Parker is scheduling his official visits with all 4 (and maybe 1 more), but does not plan on committing until very late in the process. He's been to Clemson on several unofficials.

    I won't get excited until he actually schedules a visit...

    Yep. We're major underdogs. But we stand out from his other finalists by being so different. If he decides he'd like to experience something different and leave the Carolinas... we're it. Just have to hope he loves it here when he comes for a visit.

    And it certainly doesn't hurt that he'd get to play for the best inside linebacker coach in the nation at CU.

    I'm thinking South Carolina in the end. Clemson's coaching situation is precarious at the moment. Doubt we end up getting a visit to be honest.

    Canceled his visit. Not sure whether he's rescheduling. It's not looking good, though.

    Damn, I was hoping he'd want a change of scenery and we'd benefit. He might have been inclined to do so if we were winning games. Too bad.

    Ship has sailed.

    There were potential academic concerns from CU's side and a desire to stay close to home from Parker's side. Not gonna work out.

    Buddy of mine played QB on his HS team, said we 100% would have landed him but we're too far from SC. Glad to hear we're making a positive impact with east coasters in some way.
