It's later in the game Parker, who East Hall coach Bryan Gray says should be a "no-brainer" prospect.
"He is a tremendous leader and person; kids gravitate towards him," Gray said. "Sadly, he is highly under-looked. He is 5-10, and people seem to be shy about that. I am completely mystified. He is extremely athletic, very strong arm, very intelligent. Habersham is a very athletic AAAAAA team this year. It is not like he went against a lesser program."
