There is no question that class 2010 safety Sean Parker (6-0, 185, 4.5) from Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne will be one of the most sought after safeties when his turn comes around. Here it is November of his junior year and Parker already has six offers on the table. Out west that is a lot of early offers.
Colorado, Arizona State, Oregon and Stanford were the first four schools out of the box with offers, now joining the fray are Washington State and the Minnesota Gophers.

"The coaches here at Narbonne are very proud of him, but right now Sean and his Narbonne teammates have their eye on winning the LA City Championship," Moore said. "Sean told me he will take his time and go through the hold process."
"There is no rush and he really wants to do his homework on all the different schools that are recruiting him," Moore said. "He really would like to hear from more out of state schools, he has family in the south and on the east coast so distances will not be a problem. His mother plans on moving to whatever state Sean goes to school in."
Other schools such as Notre Dame, Oregon, UCLA, Michigan and Georgia Tech are all showing a lot of earlier interest.
