Safety Steven Parker II.
Steven Parker Sr., the father of highly recruited safety Steven Parker of Jenks, Oklahoma said his son's visit to Arkansas was successful. They continue to be impressed with defensive coordinator Chris Ash.
They spent time with Ash before the game and liked what he had to say. Parker Sr. said he was speaking to a state trooper and when the trooper learned who his son was he made sure to say Arkansas sure could use him. That made a big impression on Sr.
He also praised recruiting coordinator Chris Hauser and everyone at Arkansas for being on the same page. He said his son would definitely be back for an official visit.
Only concern was the lack of a dorm just for athletes. As a father, he likes the structure that would bring. He made it clear it wasn't something is son was concerned with.
