According to the Greenville News, Kyle Parker will visit Denver this weekend to become acquainted with the Rockies organization, but that negotiations will not begin until after the trip ends.â†µ
Kyle’s father, Carl, likens the current situation to a courtship:â†µ
â€œBefore you propose, I guess you better go out on a date,â€ Carl said. â€œThis is one of those processes. The NCAA allows you to take a trip, you have 48 hours. I think everyone wants to feel each other out.â€â†µ
Parker is also the starting quarterback for the Clemson football team. He is the latest in the line of QBs the Rockies have drafted. Currently, Todd Helton and Seth Smith are the only two former QBs on the Rockies roster. Unlike those two, Parker did not play with a Manning brother.â†µ
Parker is likely to sign with the Rockies and put football behind him.
