The rumors have been circulating for so long that it almost seemed inevitable.
Tonight it happened, newly minted four-star running back Henry Parrish announced on Twitter that he’s made the decision to decommit from the Panthers and reopen his recruitment. Parrish has not named the other schools he’s considering, but hasn’t completely ruled out Pitt.

Parrish was recently named the first recipient of the Nat Moore Trophy, which is awarded to the top player in South Florida. The talented running back has made multiple Sportscenter episodes due to his electric runs and his Columbus High School will be playing for the 8A Florida State Championship.
With the decommitment of Parrish, the Panthers now have only one running back in the 2020 Class, Israel Abinkanda, who was also recently elevated to four-stars.
Parrish has been linked to Florida, Miami and South Carolina, but it is unclear whether or not the Hurricanes have room for another running back after recently receiving the commitment of high four-star Jaylan Knighton who joined Don Chaney Jr. a top 247 Composite Top 35 player and the 5th ranked running back in the nation.
