Juda Parker impressed with Oregon State 

January, 19, 2011
Juda Parker (Honolulu, Hawaii/St. Louis) visited Oregon State over the weekend and the Beavers are in a good position with the talented defensive end.

Parker also visited Hawaii back in December, but his trip to Corvallis, Ore., has put the Beavers at the top of his list.

"I was very impressed," Parker said. "I was real impressed with the coaching staff and the family environment there. What stood out most was how the coaching staff instructs the team. Respect is No. 1 over there, they tell everybody from the chefs to ball boys, to the coaches and to the players that respect is everything. If you go to Oregon State, you are guaranteed respect from the coaches and everybody else there.
