Many of you probably heard that TAMU’s DB coach, Marcel Yates, took the defensive coordinator position at Boise State. We wanted to know how or if that would affect Steven Parker’s decision. We’ve been told by our source all along that Parker was OU’s to lose but I figured I’d ask about the role Marcel played in Steven’s recruitment. Our Parker source said Marcel has been the main recruiter and Steven had a good relationship with him. He said that Marcel Yates leaving does help Oklahoma but again he’s been telling us that Steven Parker would likely end up at OU anyway.
We felt TAMU was already behind OU but this should help. If TAMU beats OU out for Parker now it would be a heck of a recruiting job by Sumlin and co. Stranger things have happened. Let’s hope it doesn’t in this case.
