    Biography: Parker is a blur from his defensive end spot, combining quick feet and hands to defeat blocks and get into the backfield. He loves the game and gives maximum effort on every play, making the most of his physical gifts. Parker has shown the ability to drop into coverage and cover running backs, which has really helped his stock on the recruiting trail.

    Selection Committee Quote: Parker really burst on to the scene last summer by flying 5,000 miles and dominating the FBU Top Gun Camp. He’s got a great burst off the ball that allows him to track down quarterbacks and rack up the sacks. Parker is athletic enough that he could star as either a linebacker or defensive end in college.

    The "Top Gun Camp" is where people discovered Parker.

    Here's what Rivals had to say about him following that camp:

    JUDA PARKER, 6-2/245 ,WDE, HONOLULU (HAWAII) ST. LOUIS

    ASSETS: Always at the front of the line, excellent pad level and a serious pass-rushing threat.

    AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT: Will most likely project as a linebacker so learning to play in space and cover backs is imperative.

    WHAT WAS MOST IMPRESSIVE: May have been the hardest worker at any position in the camp over all three days. Parker was also unstoppable coming off the edge during lineman one-on-ones.

    CONCLUSION: Parker will be receiving a nice bump in his ranking next time around. This pass-rushing specialist is perfect in the 3-4 defense. Look for his offers to triple before the first Wednesday in February arrives.

    Man, keeping up with recruits is a thankless job. Good work, buffnik.

    First off, the player is teammates with OL target Paulay Asiata.

    Which means that he may have heard there is a state of Colorado, in which there is a fine University.
    We need a player like this, he's not committed, and there's a connection through his teammate.

    So buffnick says "hey, what do you think of this guy?"

    And we say "wow, LIKE."


    Or as snowbuff so aptly put it, "Hope and Rumor, as usual."

    If you want the recruiting forum to stick to kids who have been offered and/or committed or enrolled, it's going to be a slim patch of reading.

    Sorry guys, but you took it wrong. I appreciate Buffnik's postings!

    I was hoping he would expand on it and say something like:

    "This guy is visiting and we are offering"

    -or-

    "This guy plays on the same team as a guy we are recruiting, and he just got decommitted at Tennessee, so maybe, just maybe".....

    Just don't tease me any more Buffnik. The heartbreak is intolerable.

    I figured you just wanted to know if there was solid info backing this up.

    We've seen the film. Cabral likes him. I don't know how far it will go, but we'd be his best offer if we make a move.

    If we keep that LIZ lb position, he'd be a great fit.

    No, I want commitments. I want 2 a day!

    Buffnik posts something that looks tasty over here. I run over to Rivals and nothing. I run over to Scout and nothing.

    So I guess I'm complaining that Allbuffers are getting good information and I'm wasting my time (and money) looking for the solid story behind it over at the pay-sites!

    Keep up the good work (however you do it).

    I see the connection, but I guess we don't even know if he's being recruited to CU. In the old days, I wouldn't bother looking at a kid until he committed or scheduled a visit. These days, I get interested just to find out there's a kid from Hawaii who plays football and will graduate in 2011.

    Confession: I admit, I watched film last night of a QB committed to Wyoming. Should I say more?

    You are correct. We don't know. But there are rumors and hope that JE is after him :smile2:

    Just got more interesting. AZ was able to confirm in an interview yesterday that Parker has received a CU offer.

    Close friends with Paulay Asiata. Wouldn't be a surprise if they tripped to CU together when Paulay comes the weekend of 1/21:

    Would also be suprised if Parker is not a Buff on NSD, along with his friend Asiata.

    After his performance at the Army Bowl, Rivals has raised its rating from 5.6 to 5.7 and unranked to #28 at his position. Scout has moved Parker up from its #64 DE to #36.

    Rivals article on the 6 players it awarded games balls for the Army Bowl (Stefan McClure also got one): http://colorado.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1174177

    DE Juda Parker, 6-2, 245, Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis

    Parker is an unassuming game-ball recipient, but with four tackles (including two for losses) and a blocked field, he proved to a nationally television audience that he can play with high school football's elite. Parker played defensive end in the game and defensive tackle, giving up 30 pounds to Aundrey Walker and Antonio Richardson. With that said, he was able to shed blocks and fill running lanes for the West.

    Hoping he can pack on the pounds to be a DT or big DE.

    "When I go back to school on Monday, I have a school retreat that lasts until Friday. We go away and can't use our cell phones," Parker said. "That is why I really don't want to go public yet. I will probably announce next Saturday, or I might even wait until signing day."

    Parker did have a very good trip this weekend, so don't get too worried that he's not ready to announce.
