Big sleeper WR favors ACC school

Even though wide receiver Prince Parker out of Norfolk (Va.) Maury has limited experience since last season was his first year playing varsity, he's receiving some major interest in recruiting from schools across the country.
The 6-foot-5, 190-pounder has received interest from schools including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Georgia Tech, Columbia, North Carolina, Duke, Penn State, West Virginia, Marshall, Illinois, Syracuse, Clemson and Virginia.
Parker took in a visit to Virginia.
"It was a good visit," he said. "I got to see the locker room and the whole program and we got to go to the basketball game against Virginia Tech."
Would he commit to Virginia if they offered?
"I would definitely commit early if UVA offered," he said. "But it depends on other schools if they were to offer and if I have any interest in them."
Parker likes Maryland too.
"I like Maryland a lot," he said. "I like the football program and the basketball team that's why I'm looking at them mostly."
This spring Parker just finished the basketball season and is starting up track.
"We got eliminated in the second round of the regional," he said. "We had a good season going 22-3, I know I was fourth on the team in rebounds and led the team in scoring four games after only starting in the second half of the season. The track season is going well too; I did pretty well in our first meet."
Does basketball interest Parker at the next level?
"Basketball would definitely interest me," he said. "I'd love to be a walk-on in college, but I'm focusing on going to college for football."
This spring Parker plans to attend a few combines including a local one at Lake Taylor High School and the Virginia Tech Nike Camp.
As for this summer, Parker plans to keep busy with AAU basketball and is looking at attending summer camps at Penn State, Maryland and Virginia.
Last season in his first year on varsity, Parker recorded 16 catches for 150 yards.
Parker should easily qualify with a 3.8 GPA.
