Perhaps overshadowed or just unseen, a ton of 2017’s emerged throughout the fall recruiting circuit, hoping to get in the mix with coveted Division I schools. It might be farfetched to call a Baltimore Crabs prospect ‘unseen’, however McDonogh (Md.) lefty shooter Jack Parr was a kid who helped his stock tremendously with a bevy of strong outings in various tournaments.
To begin the fall, Parr impressed with a great day at the Quaker LaxFest in Philly, reportedly following that up the next weekend with an awesome Sunday in the Crabs’ runner-up finish at the Big 4 Champions League. He’s the type of player who thrives in team tournaments when surrounded by talent, having teammates draw the slide and dish it off to him for the time and room finish. Parr’s a really nifty off-ball player who catches everything, knows where to be off-ball and can also get the rock back when he rides. The key for him will be improving his right hand and getting bigger, and he’ll certainly contribute here and there as a likely member of the Eagles’ varsity this spring.
Parr has visited Brown, Cornell and Tufts thus far, also targeting Bucknell and other similar schools. All of those would be great fits, in my opinion.
Oh, and he receives bonus points for using Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place” as his song of choice. Timeless…
