View Full Profile is quickly becoming one of the hottest quarterbacks in the 2013 class. The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder from Statesville (N.C.) High School already has scholarship offers from Eastern Carolina, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
Although the junior is a long way from setting up visits, he's sure he wants to take a close look at the Hokies in Blacksburg and the Gamecocks in Columbia.
Virginia Tech has a certain allure after its coaching staff mentored successful, mobile signal-callers like Michael Vick and Tyrod Taylor.
"I just like the coaching and everything," Parker said. "With [coach Frank] Beamer, he coached a lot of quarterbacks like me. It's a very good history there. I really like the school and the program and everything."
As for South Carolina, Parker said, "So far I just like the football program," then added that he needs to further inspect the school. When asked what will be key in his recruitment, he said academics topped the list.
"The first thing I mainly look for in a school is how they are at graduating players," he said. "To me that's real important. Another thing that I really look for is the environment."
Parker said he believes Florida and Notre Dame are close to offering him a scholarship, that both schools have said they'd like to see tape of his upcoming junior season before extending official invites.
