Juda Parker said he had an amazing trip to Colorado this past weekend and the Buffaloes have moved way up in his recruitment as the Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis weak-side defensive end gets closer to making a decision.
Colorado, Oregon State and Hawaii are the three remaining schools for Parker, a 6-foot-2, 245-pound prospect who played well at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and the three-star prospect could be announcing his school choice soon.
"I definitely have a tough decision ahead of me because this was the best visit I had so far," Parker said of his Colorado trip.
"I have to make a tough decision coming up this weekend."
Parker seemed to like everything about Colorado and its new coaching staff.
The campus was a highlight and so was meeting with all the coaches who have ties to the NFL and back to Colorado, which played an important role for Parker during the trip. The Buffaloes sure look good in his recruitment at this point.
"I had an awesome, awesome weekend," Parker said. "I was definitely blown away by the whole Colorado experience. It is a beautiful place.
"My time over here the atmosphere was great and the new coaching staff was great.
"Everybody has either played in the NFL or coached in the NFL and all of them have ties to Colorado and they're coming back and have a vision for the university and the program to bring them back to national prominence."
Rivals.com rates Parker as the No. 28 weak-side defensive end nationally and second in the Hawaii state rankings behind only three-star offensive lineman Paulay Asiata, a teammate of Parker's at Honolulu St. Louis.
