Another one: CB Parish picks Georgia over Georgia Tech

semerson@macon.comJune 13, 2013 

The Georgia football team's summer recruiting roll continues.

Malkom Parish, a cornerback at Brooks County High School, committed to Georgia on Thursday, according to the Valdosta Daily Times. Parish chose the Bulldogs over Georgia Tech, in a somewhat rare head-to-head recruiting fight between the in-state rivals.

Parish is rated a four-star prospect by the 247 Composite, which culls the major recruiting star ratings. Listed at 5-foot-9 and 186 pounds, Parish is rated the sixth-best prospect overall in the state of Georgia for the 2014 class.

He's also a top 100 player, according to the 247 Composite. Parish is the third top 100 player to commit to Georgia for the 2014 class, joining tailback Sony Michel and defensive tackle Dontavius Russell.

Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, who hails from south Georgia, took the lead on recruiting Parish.

This is Georgia's fourth commitment in the past week, and its ninth overall for the 2014 class. Here is Georgia's current list of commitments. The star ratings, heights and weights are from 247sports.com, and the comments are mine:

RB Sony Michel .... 5-11, 205 .... Fort Lauderdale, Fla. ... 5 stars
A potential immediate-impact type of player, even with Gurley and Marshall around.

RB Nick Chubb ... 5-11, 216 ... Cedartown ... 4 stars
Another tailback good enough to play right away, or at least once carries are available.

TE Jeb Blazevich ... 6-4, 230 .... Charlotte, N.C. ..... 4 stars
Georgia has succeeded lately with out-of-state tight ends, (Arom White, Orson Charles, Arthur Lynch), and hopes Blazevich is next.

CB Malkom Parish ... 5-9, 186 ... Quitman ........ 4 stars
Speedy and skilled, rated in the national top 100 and No. 6 overall in the state of Georgia.

DT Dontavius Russell .... 6-3, 300 .... Carrollton .... 4 stars
One of Chris Wilson's first recruits for Georgia, a player who will have a chance to play right away.

S Nick Glass ............ 6-2, 205 .... Suwanee ..... 3 stars
Committed to Georgia way back in April of 2012.

WR Krenwick Sanders ........ 6-2, 175 .... Jesup ..... 3 stars
One of Georgia's earliest commitments for the class, having committed in November of 2012.

G Jake Edwards .......... 6-4, 270 ...... Franklin .... 3 stars
An interior lineman whom Georgia hopes will continue to grow in the weight room.

WR Gilbert Johnson ...... 6-2, 190 ..... Miami, Fla. ... 3 stars
Actually looked taller than 6-2 at Mark Richt camp.
