MotSaG Chat with Parris Campbell JR

I enjoyed interviewing Parris Campbell Jr. as he was extremely insightful and mature in his answers which is impressive for a kid who just had his 16th birthday last week. Parris is physically superior to most kids at his age as he stands 6″0 184 lbs and running an extraordinary 4.41 40 yard dash. Parris was Ohio States 4th commit and we got lucky on this one from all reports he made a smooth transition to wide receiver at The Opening and was his teams most reliable receiver. He is going to fill in at the famous role that all Buckeye fans are aware of now the “percy harvin” role.

247 lists Parris as the number 13 overall wide recover and 119 overall player in the country
Rivals list Parris as the number 23 overall athlete
Scout lists Parris as the number 9 overall running back
