Malkom Parrish is ready to make his college decision and the decision came down to two teams because Parrish wants to stay in the state of Georgia for school. The University of Georgia and Georgia Tech are the finalists for the top-10 player in the state of Georgia. The quick-footed cornerback is smaller than most players recruited for the Bulldogs secondary but makes up for it with his explosiveness and ball skills.

UGA is considered the leader for his services as the Bulldogs have a much higher rate of players making it to the NFL and the Bulldogs have beat the Yellow Jackets 11 of the last 12 meetings. However, the Yellow Jackets have a chance as their offer is for Parrish to run the triple-option offense at quarterback. Parrish currently plays quarterback for Brooks County High School so he may be more comfortable with the position.

Parrish holds other offers from Kentucky, North Carolina and Oregon and he has been receiving interest from the Florida Gators. He has also been selected to be a U.S. Army All-American and was named the top defensive back prospect at the Valdosta MVP Camp.

Malkom Parrish is very similar in size and talent to incoming 2013 recruit Shaq Wiggins. Shaq Wiggins became a very heavy recruiter for the Bulldogs and surely Parrish will try to sway other commits if he chooses the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs have been building momentum in recruiting over the last week, landing two commits on June 8 and Nick Chubb jumped on board on June 11. The Bulldogs are hoping that Parrish makes it four in one week, bringing the total number of 2014 commits to nine.
