What do you do if a collegiate program comes to your region with a handful of offers to share?
You get in the way and hope everything you’ve worked for up until this point will be enough for said program to put its faith in you.
This is exactly what NAIA institution St. Andrews has done over the last 24 hours.
Since Tuesday afternoon, the Knights have plastered the region with multiple collegiate offers that have mostly gone out to senior student-athletes. Among the prospects to have received offers over the course of 24 hours from St. Andrews include:
Deonte Simon (2020 DB/WR 6-25 180) – Churchland
Marquas Gregg (2020 OL 6-1 289) – Churchland
Ian McLaurin (2020 LB 6-2 205) – Churchland
Jonah Jones (2020 LB 6-2 220) – Salem
D.J. Harris (2020 ATH 5-10 168) – Salem
Dejon Felton (2020 DB 6-1 175) – Catholic High SChool
Among those to receive an offer from St. Andrews on Tuesday afternoon was Booker T. Washington starting dual-threat quarterback Larry Parker, Jr (2020 QB 6-2 190). The senior product played his last game in a Mighty Bookers uniform in the Region 3A quarter-finals against Norcom three weeks ago in which BTW sustained a 24-6 loss. His relationship with the Knights was initiated via Twitter and started with him reaching out to Coach Reynolds.
“I’m very excited about it,” Parker told recruit757. “Coach Reynolds seems like a very cool person. We already conversed through Twitter earlier today (Tuesday) and then later on he called and offered me. They seem very interested and I’m very interested in the school.”
Parker has plans to take a look at a few other collegiate programs before even thinking about making a commitment which includes: VUL, Christopher Newport, West Virginia Wesleyan, and West Virginia State among others. The BTW product currently holds a grade point average of 3.95 and picked up a score of 1000 on his most recent SAT attempt. He has also garnered offers from VUL, Hastings College, and Bates College to go along with St. Andrews.
