Parks verbally commits to Auburn

HOGANSVILLE, Ga. (WTVM) - Callaway High School tight end Ricky Parks verbally committed to Auburn on Friday.

The 6-4, 231 pound Parks is rated by as the No. 2 tight end in the nation. That ranking is remarkable considering Parks was the starting quarterback for the Cavaliers last year in his junior season.

Parks will move back to his natural position of tight end for his upcoming senior year.

He will join former teammate Quan Bray, who signed with the Tigers back in February.

Parks chose Auburn over Georgia and Florida.

National college football signing day is February 1, 2012.
