Dwayne Parchment is thrilled with how spring practice has gone for him not only because he's landed some more offers but because many more programs have seen him in action.
In the last few weeks, the Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser standout has been offered by Boise State, Nevada and San Diego State but it's still Colorado - his first offer - that stands out the most.
"I don't really have any favorites but my first choice right now would be Colorado," Parchment said. "They were the first to reach out to me and I like the coaches over there. They're really cool and nice and I can see myself playing for them."
The 5-foot-11, 183-pound athlete has landed the offers and said nearly two dozen programs have stopped by to see spring workouts.
Fresno State, USC and UCLA are showing the most new interest and Parchment said he's hopeful more offers could be close.
"A lot of coaches are coming by the school," Parchment said. "I think 20 coaches came by my school since spring ball started. Our last spring practice was on Thursday and a lot of schools have stopped by.
"Four of those schools offered recently and then others are thinking about it. There are other schools that came, too, but they haven't contacted me like those schools."
Spring practice has been productive, just as Parchment expected. The Fontana Kaiser standout said he knew some coaches could get more interested once they saw him in person. That has happened and Parchment said he's definitely excited to hear from some more teams.
"I was expecting I'd get some offers during spring ball," Parchment said. "I got one earlier this year from Colorado and I was expecting to get a few more during the spring.
"I'm pretty excited right now. The recruiting process has picked up great and I hope schools keep offering."
