Recruiting: West Rowan's Parks commits to Virginia

From staff reports
West Rowan junior running back K.P. Parks gave Virginia’s football program a verbal commitment on Monday.
Parks, who has rushed for 7,121 yards and scored 99 touchdowns in three varsity seasons, indicated in a story in Sunday’s Salisbury Post that he was leaning heavily toward the Cavaliers.
Parks, 5-foot-7, 185 pounds, carried 386 times for 2,864 yards and 43 TDs as a junior for the 3A state champions and has already broken every Rowan season and career mark for rushing and scoring.
A solid student, Parks owns a 3.4 GPA.
Parks followed through with scheduled visits to East Carolina, Clemson and N.C. State over the weekend, but he remained sold on Virginia and gave coach Al Groh a commitment by phone on Monday.
Parks, a backup point guard on the basketball team who provides solid insurance for freshman phenom Keshun Sherrill, played in West’s first-round playoff victory against A.L. Brown last night and scored two points.
Junior defensive end Chris Smith, also involved with basketball, is likely to be the next big-timer to announce in Mount Ulla.
