*Excellent safety who is a teammate of current USC signee Bryon Moore.

*Rivals has him listed as potentially the safety in CA next year.

* Has ND as his top school, but he'll take his time and take all his visits before making a decision.

* Scout has him listed at 5'10", 175, but that was after his sophomore year.

* He went to USC's camp, but hasn't been offered as of yet. WOuld be great to steal another one from USC, and Brian Polian is recruiting him.

Why do people make these assumptions all the time? Te'o has 2 cousins at BYU and where did he end up? As far as Te'o knew when he made his commitment was his HS teammates Hillard and Toma were going to UCLA...and where did he end up? back to Parker. He also stated he wants out of Cali and that Notre Dame is in the lead. I figured after Manti's Commitment this place would be less negative, at least until after the first game.

I swear if Usc gets this safety I will be very pissed! They just loaded up on five safeties in this years recruiting haul, and all of them were at least 4stars (whatever that is worth).
I am just saying, with Usc having so much young depth, it has got to influence his decision, if indeed he is seriously considering them.
I think we have a great shot to land him.

Nine or ten years ago Mike Frank was so convinced that a recruit was bound for ND that he said he would paint his blue if Kelly Baraka didn't end up at ND. He went to UM. At the next Blue & Gold game somebody showed up at Mike's tailgate with blue paint and a brush.

Be careful what you promise, somebody will remember.

7/8 Per Biggins ESPN

Parker will take all 5 Offiicals plus unofficials to local schools USC and UCLA.

I'm going to ND (Sept. 4). I'm also setting a visit to Michigan, but I haven't locked in the date yet. After that, I'm pretty open and really don't know who will get my last 3 visits but I do plan to take all 5. I'm in no hurry to make my decision. In fact, the plan for me is to wait until signing day before I announce. So I'm going to take my time, do my research, take all my visits and then make a solid decision.

As best I can recall you can do everything allowed on the Offical but the recruit has to pay all expenses himself. If there's a free meal he has to pay the going rate. If he goes to the game he buys his own ticket (the university is allowed to make one available at face price. If he stays over night, his dime. No allowance for travel.

Now the 23rd best safety according to Rivals. Hope he has a monster senior year to shut them up because this kid can play. may not be the fastest or most athletic but you can't teach his insticts and he hits like a truck. Reminds me of Bob Sanders.

Per ISD, Parker had a great visit and really enjoyed the family-like atmosphere. He hit it off great with Justin Utopo, who also was there for the first time and loved his visit. Unfortunately, while he loved the visit, Parker still claims no favorites, but ND definitely helped their cause...

Per Greg Biggins ESPN

DB Parker visits Notre Dame - ESPN (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?entryID=4457557&name=West_Recruiting)


Defensive back Sean Parker (Harbor City, Calif./Narbonne) took a visit to Notre Dame this past weekend and you can expect the Irish to be in it until the very end for the hard-hitting safety.

Parker expects to take all five visits and may hold off making his decision until national signing day in February. The trip to South Bend was visit No. 1 for Parker.
"The trip was cool, I really enjoyed myself," Parker said. "The game atmosphere was great and the football players are just loved there. I love how passionate the fans are and how much support they show the program.
"They had signs with my name on it and were chanting for me. I like the coaches a lot too. They're always positive and have something good to say to you. Everything about the visit was nice, I really can't think of a single negative. I liked the location a lot and the weather was even nice so it was just a great visit."
Parker has yet to set any other official visits, but said Michigan and Washington are two schools he'll visit for sure. USC will get an unofficial visit and Cal, Arizona State and Tennessee are fighting for his last two official visits.

Aaannnnndddd, more bad news. Parker eliminated the Irish, per ISD, and is down to 3; Cal, USC, and Michigan. Earlier in the day, he told ESPN he was down to SC, Michigan and ND. Said he loved his trip to ND, and Kelly had already left him a message and he was going to call Kelly back. Said that Michigan was recriuting him the hardest, he loved his visit there, and they were probably in the lead.

Then he texted ISD and told them he took ND off his list.

Before you go jumping off the cliff...these things are to be expected. These guys were recruited by CW and his staff. Now there is a coaching change, and with that will come defections. But be patient, there will be guys coming on board as well. Kelly will be doing in-home visits when permitted and he'll turn it up. Just gotta be patient. You'll hear more about these things before you hear good news, because coaches are limited at this time. I personally have faith that Kelly will get this thing going...

I just want to say that Brian Kelly did not bring all this about.
Charlie Weis did this to Notre Dame.
I Know we will lose some recruits which i hate to see happen but wait till we start winning again with whom we have.
This will all be forgotten.
We Must Trust Brian Kelly to do with Notre Dame what he did with Cinci and the other schools.
We will return to Glory again beleive in that.

Jason, it's been a week. You're already gonna kill a guy who was hired LAST FRIDAY? A coaching change was needed. And guess what, a coaching change hurts in recruiting, because of the relationships the staff builds with players. And guess what, we lost players even with CW on staff (need I remind you of Hunter, Trattou, et al?).

Would you rather have CW still coaching us, and ND being a mediocre team with 4 and 5 stars running all over the field, or would you rather have a mediocre recruiting year with a coach who has a proven track record of 'coaching them up'? ND wins on the field next year with a bunch of studs being coached by a college winner, and the recruits will come. And anyways, wait until Feb 3rd to announce that the sky is falling.

Sucks to lose out on Parker, but he wasn't guaranteed to ND even with Weis and Polian. Michigan guys thought they had a great shot at him, as did the USC guys. We were 3rd anyways...

Seriously, Fellas there is always change in recruiting classes when there is a coaching change....No recruit goes to a school JUST for the school, for some (a lot of our commits, which is awesome) the school is enough to outweigh the loss of the relationships w/ the previous staff, for others it is not....We will end up w/ who we are supposed to, and they and Coach Kelly will take us back to the top.

Exactly what I'm thinking. Recruiting is important, we all know that. What Ty Losingham didn't do with the draw that Notre Dame has still amazes me.

Kelly will recruit. It might not be the almighty 5 stars, but I think he knows what he's doing. He'll bring in the guys he want and actually coach them up!
