Diamond Talk: Aaron Parker, WR, University of Rhode Island | CAA’s Stud WR

I love small school football players and I love a player from Rhode Island this year. He is cocky and confident everything you want in a wide receiver. He is the top wideout in his conference and his playmaking ability is top tier.

His uncle is none other than Walter Easley the Super Bowl-winning fullback for the San Francisco 49ers. With the 49ers, he rushed for 235 yards on 81 carries and caught nine passes for 62 yards. His nephew is special though, and I think will have just as successful career in the NFL.

Parker played football and basketball at Gwynn Park High School in Maryland and grew into an All-Met and All-County player as a senior. He was his basketball teams co-MVP as a senior and the kid is a straight freak on the football field.

He stands in at 6030 and weighs 208 pounds. He has started six games as a starter and finished the season with 23 receptions and 441 yards, which led the Rhodys.

As a sophomore at URI, he started 9 games and ranked fifth in the entire league with 74.8 yards receiving per game. He tied for third in the league with seven touchdowns.

As a junior, Parker finished as a CAA All-Conference player starting in 9 games and he led every CAA wideout in receiving yards, receiving yards per game and touchdown receptions in the regular season. He finished with 61 receptions for 955 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He is going into his senior year this year and is already off to a huge start. He finished last weeks game with 9 receptions for 144 yards and 1 touchdown. Parker is special and NFL teams are paying attention. I think he could hear his name called in the NFL draft if he continues to shine.
