Parrish was a fairly touted recruit coming out of high school, and stayed close to home, signing with the Hurricanes. He redshirted his first season but made an immediate impact the next year as a return man. As a sophomore, he played as a slot receiver as well as handling punts, but missed part of the year with bruised lungs. He returned as a senior and earned the starting job as well as 2nd team All-ACC honors. He declared for the draft following the year, choosing to bypass his remaining year of eligibility. Parrish also competed in track for Miami.
Parrish is on the shorter side for a receiver. He was a champion collegiate sprinter and is built like one. He has a compact frame and a solid, muscular base. Parrish possesses great acceleration. He goes from zero to top speed as quick as almost any player in the draft. He is very quick and is tough to keep up with off the release. He shows good lateral movement and for the most part, can avoid the jam with his quickness. However, when he is pressed, he must do a better job of using his hands to defeat the jam. As a route runner, he shows great explosion and cuts sharply on his breaks. He has the ability to separate from almost any defensive back. He has good hands and will make most catches, but needs to do a better job of catching passes with his hands. He lets the ball get into his body too often and that leads to some drops. After the catch, he is one of the most dangerous and elusive open field runners in this draft. Those same skills have also allowed him to excel as a return man. He shows decent ability as a blocker as he is aggressive and will battle defenders, but lacks the size/strength to overpower people.
Parrish has exciting ability and can bring an instant spark to any team. However, his upside isnít as high as some of the top receivers in this draft and he may not ever be anything more than a slot receiver. He can contribute immediately as a return specialist though and that helps his stock greatly. Parrish could go as high as the late 2nd Round and if not, should be gone by early in the second day.
