Juco OL favoring Huskers

Compton (Calif.) College offensive tackle Gerald Parker is one of the top junior college prospects in the country after transferring from Pasadena City College after last season. The three-star rated prospect has taken one official visit so far and has three more lined up beginning this month.

"Recruiting is going fine, I'd say," the 6-foot-7, 285-pound Parker said. "I'm getting my visits lined up and I'll start going to them later on this month. I already took one visit, to Iowa State. I had a good time on the visit.

"I've also got trips lined up to Nebraska, Kansas State and Louisville. I'm also being recruited by coaches at Washington State, Washington and Oregon State."

Parker, a New Iberia, La., native, is going to visit Nebraska for the Huskers' regular season finale against Colorado on Nov. 24.

"I'll be at Nebraska for their last game," he said. "Kansas State is also in November later in the month. I forget the exact date. I also have Louisville lined up for December 8."

The No. 44 ranked prospect in Rivals.com's junior college rankings has three schools near the top of his list.

"I'd say Iowa State, Louisville and Nebraska are my favorites, but Nebraska might be the favorite among all of them. They've been recruiting me since last year when I was at Pasadena. I really like what they have to offer in their program and their school.

"If I like the visit, it might be a done deal. I might not take the other trips. If I find that it is as good as I think it might be, then I won't take those others."
