Stephenson High School tight end Joshua Parris has backed off his commitment to South Florida from two weeks ago.
“There was a misunderstanding,” Parris told the AJC. “I committed to South Florida to play tight end, but they told me recently that they recruited me at fullback. I want to play tight end in college.”
The 6-foot-3, 230-pound Parris said he has Ole Miss, Boston College and Vanderbilt as his new leaders, while South Florida “is still in the mix.” He has visited Ole Miss, and will travel to the other schools and announce his college decision by the end of the summer.
Stephenson is a candidate to lead the nation with football prospects signing major-college football scholarships in 2012. The DeKalb County school has 6 players committed to FBS schools (formerly NCAA Div. I-A), with a total of 14-17 projected to sign D1.
