BATESVILLE – South Panola running back Nick Parker has given a verbal commitment to play college football at Ole Miss, according to reports.
Parker (6-1, 205) is rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com. He rushed for more than 1,500 yards and 18 touchdowns in helping South Panola to the Class 6A championship last season.
Parker told RebelSports.net that his grades are in line to play as a freshman next season but that he has yet to take the ACT. He must make a qualifying test score to be eligible. He is scheduled to make an official visit on Jan. 22.
Parker also received scholarship offers from LSU, Tennessee and Mississippi State.
