UNC Football Recruiting: Arizona State offers Steven Parker


Yesterday, the Arizona State Sun Devils extended an offer to one of the top prospects in the 2014 recruiting class in Jenks High safety Steven Parker. The four-star recruit continues to see big offers pour in, and he is likely one of the top 200 prospects in the 2014 class. Parker excels in run support and has great range at the safety position. Likely a strong safety in college, Parker is also adept in coverage and had 52 tackles and three interceptions last season.

Many elite programs have extended offers to Parker, and the four-star safety also has a major offer in the state of North Carolina  from the UNC Tar Heels. UNC, Arizona State, the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the in-state power Oklahoma Sooners, the Kansas State Wildcats, the Oregon State Beavers, the Utah Utes, the in-state power Oklahoma State Cowboys, the Texas A&M Aggies, and the Washington State Cougars have all offered Parker. Memphis has also offered, and Parker is garnering interest from the North Carolina State Wolfpack, LSU, Texas, Iowa State, and Stanford.

One of the top 15 safety recruits in the class, Steven Parker’s recruitment will be heavily contested in the state of Oklahoma  with the Sooners and Cowboys. The 6’2″, 175 pound recruit has very good speed (4.5 forty) and is a consensus top five recruit in the state. After a sensational junior season that won him many prestigious accolades in the state, Parker should continue to see more offers from the likes of Arizona State pour in.

Parker attended Oklahoma’s junior day last month, and he has received a whopping five offers over the past week from Kansas State, Memphis, Texas A&M, Utah, and now Arizona State.
