The day got off to a good start for Steve Sarkisian and the Washington Huskies when four star safety Sean parker from Narbonne HS in Harbor City, California chose the UW over Michigan and USC.
Parker is a huge get for Sarkisian and his staff. It marks a big win over new USC head coach Lane Kiffin who wanted to use Parker to help rebuild his depleted secondary. Parker also considered Michigan and as of last night it was down to the Huskies and the Wolverines.
In the end Parker felt that Washington was the best athletic and academic fit for him. Academics are important for Parker. He sports a 3.8 GPA. In the end the stability of a young coaching staff at Washington, the ability to compete for a starting job right away, and the right mix of academic programs are what convinced Parker to become a Husky.
