Parks says: "I have decided to attend the University of Arizona because I have been an Arizona fan for as long as I can remember. Watching Arizona in the College World Series year after year has provided me motivation to the best player I can be. To play for Coach Candrea and the rest of the coaching staff is like a dream come true for me. I have visited the campus multiple times and each time that I visit, I am reassured that this is the school for me. I am looking forward to becoming a better player and playing with the best of the best, against the best of the best. This team is truly talented and I can't wait to hit the field to play alongside everyone. I am so excited to join the Wildcat family."
