New, comment

Parker is the second Linebacker in the 2018 class.

Parker is a 6’2”, 225 lb. 3-star Linebacker from the New Orleans area. He doesn’t come as the most highly recruited player but was one of the first to get an offer from new Defensive Coordinator John Chavis. There was a little concern he might flip to Texas, but despite the delay in his signing he confirmed he’s going to be a Razorback.

He’s got good speed for the position, running a 4.5 40 yard dash, and racked up over 100 tackles in his senior season. Another linebacker to go alongside Bumper Pool will also help with the depth of the defense. Because of the two different signing days, teams like Arkansas are going to continue to try and find undiscovered gems, hoping Parker can be a guy who outperforms his recruiting ranking. It’s not going to be the most flashy day of the college football offseason but it’s been an important one for Chad Morris and the Razorbacks.
