Alabama Prospect Decommits From Big 10 Program
Class of 2023 defensive lineman Tomarrion Parker has decommitted from Penn State.
The Phenix City, Ala., native chose the Nittany Lions in June of 2022 over Georgia, Ohio State, Tennessee, and Alabama.
The four-star recruit discussed his decommitment decision with Chad Simmons from On3Sports. "The No. 120 overall prospect in the On3 Consensus added that he felt he wasn’t 100 percent sure of his commitment at this point, and wants to take more time with his recruiting process after rushing into an early commitment," wrote Simmons.
Alabama sent the 6'4, 250 lb lineman an offer in October of 2021 and since then has had two unofficial visits to the Capstone.
Parker ranks at No. 49 nationally, No. 4 in defensive linemen, and No. 6 in the state of Alabama, according to 247Sports.
"Displays good athletic ability and a natural ability to bend the edge. Smooth mover for his size. Plays with good initial foot and body quickness. Exhibits active hands at the point of attack. Has the ability to beat you with speed or power off the edge. Flashes good lateral quickness in space and shows some ability to drop. Closes space exceptionally well for size. Demonstrates good play strength at the point of attack and flashes some power in his hands off the edge," said national recruiting analyst from 247Sports Cooper Petagna.
Petagna compared Parker to former Crimson Tide and current New England Patriots linebacker Anfernee Jennings.
Although nothing has confirmed about a new interest from Alabama, Parker has already set two new official visits to SEC schools Florida and Tennessee in October.
