One of Georgia’s top college football prospects at tight end will make his college decision on Friday afternoon.
Ricky Parks from Callaway High School will announce between Auburn, UGA and Alabama.
Auburn is considered the school to beat but Parks once upon a time listed Alabama as his frontrunner. Parks performed in front of UGA coach Mark Richt at Georgia’s 7 on 7 camp last week in Athens.
Here’s a breakdown of Parks from Kipp Adams of UGASports/Rivals.com:
“Ricky Parks, at 6-foot-4, 240-pounds, is an incredible specimen that brings a lot to the table at multiple positions. In a run/spread offense, he possesses the arm strength and mobility to play quarterback at a high level, and has good field vision. As a tight end, he has prototypical size, speed and strength to become a big mismatch as a hybrid tight end/ receiver. For that reason, Parks will likely start out at tight end at the next level and should be considered a top 5 talent at the position coming out of high school. If offense does not work out, he would still project very well as an outside linebacker due to his well developed physique and explosiveness for an athlete his size. Parks currently plays quarterback for Callaway, so he may need to work on fine tuning his blocking ability as a tight end.”
