SEC recruiting battle ends as lineman William Griffin-Parker announces his commitment
Go to Alabama and work to try and keep the dynasty rolling or stay home and help Tennessee build toward taking down the Tide?
That’s the decision Nashville native William Griffin-Parker faced as his recruitment came to a head and the big lineman has made his decision — he’s headed to Rocky Top to play for Jeremy Pruitt.
He announced his decision Friday live during an appearance on CBS Sports HQ.
“At the end point, it was more about the relationship with the coaches,” Griffin-Parker said of his decision.
The 6-foot-5, 325-pound Griffin-Parker plays at Pearl-Cohn in Nashville and is rated as a three-star prospect, the No. 34 offensive tackle prospect and a top 450 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
While his current ranking may not blow you away, the Nashville native holds scholarship offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Ohio State and Oklahoma, among many others.
The Pearl-Cohn standout was one of the highest-rated uncommitted prospects remaining in the Volunteer State heading into the high school football season as 247Sports Composite Rankings list Griffin-Parker as the No. 13 overall player from Tennessee.
