Editor’s note: This post from Dalton Keene is the continuation of our new series breaking down UGA recruiting.
This past season in Athens wasn’t all that fans hoped it to be, but with one of the top recruiting classes in the nation on the way, the Georgia Bulldogs look stacked for the next four years.
One of the recruits that will make an impact is “athlete” Malkom Parrish. When you see the “ATH” in front of a player’s name, you know that he will be able to play anywhere on the field, and that is definitely a welcomed site. Parrish isn’t all that big, but he has some decent size to him when evaluating him positionally. Weighing 185 pounds and standing 5-foot-10, Parrish will be looking to make an immediate impact to either the defense of the offense, wherever Coach Richt and his staff decide to put him.
Parrish played his high school ball at Brooks County High School in Quitman, GA. Brooks County has been known to be a powerhouse team over the past couple of seasons, and producing talent like Parrish just makes that to be more true.
The athlete tag is attached to Malkom Parrish, but according to Max Preps, his listed position is CB. That shouldn’t surprise anyone, simply because of his explosive measurables combined with his size. In his senior season at BCHS, his team went 12-2 with a 6-0 record in their division, and they finished out the season as the 50th rank team in the state by one publication.
Malkom was also a U.S. Army All-American and participated in their showcase of top tier High School talent. The U.S. Army All-American Bowl showcases talent that has gone on to the NFL, and there is no doubt that Malkom Parrish can do just that. Currently, ESPN has Parrish rated as the #77 player overall in the Class of 2014, and with his #10 mark among “athletes”, Mark Richt could have another steal.
