One of the nation’s top defensive backs Freddie Parish (6-1, 195, 4.49) from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly has decided to take the suspense out of his recruitment early and he committed to Notre Dame head coach Ty Willingham this weekend during his official visit.
Parish was one of the most inspiring as well as interesting recruiting stories in the nation this season.
Parish didn’t even start his junior season after sitting behind in the eyes many the best defensive back in the country Darnell Bing.
Parish is currently rated by Rivals.com as the nation’s # 71 prospect in the nation. He currently stands as the nation’s #6 safety prospect and he is rated by Pac10Recruiting as the state of California’s #9 prospect at any position.
Now that is pretty heady stuff when you consider last year at this time Parish was a back-up. This young man is a testimony of what hard work can do for you.
Parish trains with the Phenomenon Factory whose owner is Charles Collins. Collins has quite a track record helping athletes make it to the D1 level and beyond. His work at the Phenomenon Factory and his performances combines, Parish saw his status soar from sleeper to major big time prospect.
Parish had offers from the likes of Oregon, USC, Stanford, UCLA, and Washington. He visited Notre Dame this past weekend (September 6th) and he had a visit scheduled to Washington on September 27th.
The scouting report on Parish is he hits like a Mack truck and has playmaking capabilities. Another thing for you to consider is – Freddie’s best days on the gridiron are ahead of him. Another thing to like about Parish is he is very competitive and doesn’t duck anything. He wants to compete.
Pac10Recruiting is setting up an interview with the talented youngster and will have more on Parish later…
