Clemson continues to hold a slight lead on USC for LB Justin Parker (6-2 225) of Beaufort. Parker was at Clemson's game against Middle Tennessee and plans to be back more games this season. He is looking at attending USC's home opener against Florida Atlantic a week from Saturday.
Parker also is holding offers from Georgia Tech, Nebraska, Maryland, Wake Forest, Central Florida, NC State, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Colorado, South Florida, Mississippi State and East Carolina.
"I have no new offers to report at this time but I think Duke, Boston College, Oregon and Cal are close to offering," Parker said. "I know that I will be taking in a few games at Clemson and USC, and I know that Clemson and USC will get official visits. Until I make a final cut, everyone is still a possibility."
