Parris, Je T'aime: Georgia Tight End Commits To Syracuse

via blogs.ajc.com

Georgia tight end Joshua Parris became SU Class of 2012 member No. 4 when he committed to head North.

Earlier today we posted about Zack Chibane, a Syracuse player who originally committed to South Florida before seeing the light.  It looks like Joshua made the same, smart decision. We like to call it Operation: Suck It, Skip.

Then again, USF has only themselves to blame:

"There was a misunderstanding," Parris told the AJC. "I committed to South Florida to play tight end, but they told me recently that they recruited me at fullback. I want to play tight end in college."

Parris is rated three stars by Scout and ESPN. According to Rivals, he chose the Orange over offers from USF, BC, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Vandy and Virginia. Scout says West Virginia offered him as well.

Here's what ESPN thinks of him:

Parris can be a productive target in the passing game as a tight end. He has adequate height and carries solid bulk and looks to be a kid with a somewhat thick and sturdy build.

6-foot-3, 230-pounds, Parris could end up being a critical recruit for the Orange. After Nick Provo leaves, SU has depth at the TE spot but not a lot of pass-catching stars.
