Jake Worthen of scout.com believes Colorado is the leader in the clubhouse for Hawaii DE Juda Parker. Parker, a 6'2" 250 pound rush end from St Louis High School in Hawaii, would be a great commit for Jon Embree. Parker played in last month's Army All American game (watch Parker's selection to the game here).
Rivals ranks Juda as the 28th best defensive end in the country and the second best prospect in the state of Hawaii. If he does commit to the University of Colorado, he would be the second player from the island in this class, joining LB K.T. Tuumalo. Parker was once a Tennessee Volunteers commit but the Volunteers decided to go elsewhere recently.
The defensive end was very productive in his high school career. Last year as a senior, he was named 2010 Hawaii Defensive Player of the Year by the Star Advertiser & the Interscholastic League of Honolulu Defensive Co-Player of the Year. He recorded 65 tackles, 16 sacks and two forced fumbles while helping St. Louis to 11 wins and a state championship.
