Four-star Miami running back Henry Parrish, Jr. is down to a final four of Pitt, Oregon, Ole Miss and South Carolina, he posted on Instagram on Friday.

Parrish, a four-star running back in the Class of 2020, originally committed to Pitt back in June after taking an official visit to Pitt.

But following an offer from Florida in September, Parrish started to look elsewhere and he officially de-committed from Pitt in December.
Parrish took official visits to South Carolina in September and Florida Atlantic in October. Then-FAU head coach Lane Kiffin has since been hired as the head coach at Ole Miss, and Parrish has a visit to Mississippi scheduled for Jan. 31.

Parrish has said he plans on making his commitment final next week.

A consensus four-star prosecutes from Columbus High School in Miami, Parrish is rated by 247 Sports composite as the No. 24 running back in the country and No. 51 player in Florida.

In addition to the above offers, he also received Power Five scholarship opportunities from Florida State, Indiana, Iowa, Miami, Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee, USC, Utah, Wake Forest and West Virginia.

Pitt has one other running back in its Class of 2020, four-star Brooklyn back Israel Abanikanda, who has already enrolled at Pitt. The Panthers did not lose a running back to graduation, so it does not appear that a second back is a necessity for the Panthers in the class.

If he signs with Pitt, he’ll become the best back on their entire roster. Hes special.

So yes take him.

He does not want to play here. He is used the Pitt offer and commitment to look for something better in his eyes. Tell him to go fly a kite. If you saw the kid that is coming from Brooklyn he is better anyway. He won Ny player of the year.

yea because we’re a program that can turn down elite talent. If anybody needs to go fly a kite, it’d be you. Abanikanda should be a very good RB, but he’s not on Parrish’s level.

AJ Davis does NOT have what it takes to get Pitt better. He’s average at best. Always take talent unless they’re entitled!

A second running back- especially one with Parrish’s talent- is very much a necessity for this recruiting class.

Sibley is a question mark. Has the pedigree and has shown flashes but getting hurt ended that. Paul Chryst never saw a running back he didn’t like. I think Parrish behind an established offensive line next year could be the key to getting over the top. Still need a minimums of four first line backs and more if you can get ‘em.

The latest date to “next week” is the 25th. That is six days before he visits Ole Miss. Don’t believe a word he tells you.
