Four-star safety Sean Parker (6-0, 185, 4.5) from Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne remains one of the hottest recruits in the western region. He now holds 26 offers and an offer from a school in every BCS Conference school in the nation. He recently up an offer from National Champion Florida Gators.
"Florida's offer made me delighted because it is a big time program that won the national championship last season," Parker said. "My recruitment has been a bit of a surprise to me."
"I wasn't really contacted by a lot of schools and when I did and started getting offers," Parker said. "I was shocked."
Just a sampling of the schools that schools that have offered are Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Washington, Washington State, Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Michigan, Minnesota, Penn State, Wisconsin and Notre Dame. And that list is just a sampling of his offers.
Parker stated that Oklahoma, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Michigan and Notre Dame as schools that shocked him the most and didn't think would be interested in him.
With schools as impressive as Parker's list does he have any unofficial visits planned this summer?
"I'm done with unofficial visits," Parker said. "I wanted to go to Oregon this past weekend (Saturday May 2nd), but I couldn't make it."
"I'm going to break my list down to a smaller number in the summer," Parker said. "After I do more research, I will have a clearer idea of where I'll take my visits."
"I'm planning on taking all of my visits and I probably won't commit until signing day," Parker said. "All of the schools are on the same level. I'm still doing the research so I don't have any favorites."
"I'm definitely keeping options open until signing day," Parker said. "That's when it all comes down."
Parker is planning on improving his skills at the USC Rising Star camp, the B2G Camp and maybe the UCLA camp.
As a junior, Parker racked up 57 tackles, five picks, three forced fumbles, one sack and one fumble recovery as he earned first-team all-league, first-team all-area, and first-team all-city for his junior season performance.
As a sophomore, Parker earned first-team all-league honors after accounting for 60 tackles, five interceptions, four pass deflections, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.
Besides being a terrific football player, he also gets the job done in the classroom as he is an honor roll student and carries a 3.8 GPA.
Parker earned a spot on the Rivals.com preseason Rivals100 team for the class of 2010 landing as a the nation's No. 49 prospect at any position.
