Miami (Fla.) Columbus three-star running back Henry Parrish made the trek up to Gainesville (Fla.) for the Sunshine Showdown this past weekend and was impressed by what he saw from the Gators.
“It was a great team win,” Parrish said when asked about what he enjoyed about being on campus for the rivalry game. “Like, everybody, like, came as one, and like, they played all heart…They came out with vigor.”
The 5-foot-9 back gave his verbal commitment to Pitt earlier this year, but is keeping his options open.
Though the Gators entered the picture with an offer much later in his recruiting process, after this visit to the Swamp, Florida is very much on Parrish’s radar.
“Yea, now they are (in the picture),” he explained of how the Gators fit into his college search. “Like, now that I see that they are more interested in me, now I can really see, like — consider myself.”
Despite the Gators’ trend toward more of an air raid offense under quarterback Kyle Trask, Parrish like what he saw from running backs Lamical Perine and Dameon Pierce.
“I like it,” he said. “How they substitute each other, and when one gets tired they just keep going and keep rotating and just — that’s it.”
Aside from the team’s fervor for football and feeling needed, Parrish feels drawn to the coaching staff at Florida.
“The faculty. Like, they’re amazing and, just, you can’t explain it.”
Parrish is currently considering Pitt, South Carolina and Florida as his college options. He plans to announce his decision and sign his Letter of Intent in February, as it is important to Parrish that he makes a thoughtful decision about where he ends up next year.
“Just whoever is getting me is just going to be — they’re going to get the best out of me for that three or four years.”
He is the No. 717 ranked prospect in the nation according to the 247 Sports Composite.
