Bill Parker has been hearing from one Pac-12 school in particular and the Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax athlete hopes an offer could be close.
If UCLA offers, Parker said, it would be tough to beat the Bruins because he has grown up close to the program and he considers it his dream school.
"That would be a great thing," Parker said.

"I would definitely consider committing. That's one of my dream schools. You know when you see that school when you're a kid and you say you want to be there? That's how it is with UCLA."
The Bruins have been showing a good amount of interest in Parker, who was one of the top performers at the Passing Down Best of the West 7on7 tournament this past weekend in Santa Maria, Calif.
Parker, a 6-foot-1, 173-pound prospect, excels at both wide receiver and cornerback. UCLA likes the Los Angeles Fairfax standout on defense and Parker said he's fine with playing on either side of the ball.
He's simply looking for an opportunity to perform and he hopes the Bruins offer because it would be a strong consideration to make his commitment.
"I've been talking to the coaches at UCLA and they said I look good playing defense," Parker said.
"They want me to go there and play corner. They're recruiting me as an athlete and they want to keep a good relationship with me so I could get to UCLA."
