The likelihood of Georgia Tech signee Bobby Parks making it to campus appears slim. Coach Brian Gregory has reached out to Parks, whom former coach Paul Hewitt signed to a letter of intent before his dismissal, but hasn’t received much response.
Said Gregory, “It’s the most bizarre recruiting situation that I’ve ever seen.”
Parks, the son of former college basketball star and Hawks draft choice Bobby Parks Sr., lives in the Philippines with his father and Filipino mother. In January, the Philippine Star reported that Parks intended to play for a Filipino college team, but his father was quoted as saying that his point guard son would study his options about continuing his career in the U.S. in two years’ time.
With Parks having signed to play for Tech, Gregory said he and athletic director Dan Radakovich have tried “numerous times” to contact him and his family with limited success.
“The family was supposed to call me and (I) have got nothing,” Gregory said.
