Four-star safety Parker getting serious

All safety Steven Parker (Jenks, Okla./Jenks) has known is playing football and basketball. Before he was a four-star safety prospect, he was all about hoops.

When the football offers started to trickle in around this time last year, it didn’t change anything for Parker. He didn’t spend the summer on the camp circuit or making unofficial visits. Instead he was playing in AAU basketball tournaments across the country.
