Penn State football commits

Parker Washington

Position: Receiver

Recruiting class (size): 2020 (16 players)

Hometown/School: Richmond, Texas/Fort Bend Travis

Height/weight: 5-10/197

Stars: 3 (247Sports); 4 (Rivals)

Other top offers: Wisconsin, Nebraska, Indiana, Kentucky, Kansas, Utah, Georgia Tech, Houston, Boston College, Duke

Notable: He’s rated the No. 58 prospect in Texas and No. 70 receiver in the country by 247Sports. Note he has four stars from Rivals and three stars from 247Sports. His top offer list isn’t indicative of a typical four-star guy, with some solid programs but not many powerhouses. He’s in the finals at The Opening, so his stock could get even higher.

Quotable: “Really liked what I saw from receiver Parker Washington tonight at The Opening. He shined during the one-on-one portion and had arguably the night’s most impressive catch.” — 247Sports recruiting writer Tom Loy on Twitter
