Whitehouse’s Jake Parker Receives LSU Junior Day Invitation; Reggie Long Update

Whitehouse’s 2014 class has seen a lot of recruiting activity lately.

The latest to receive interest is receiver Jake Parker, who said via Twitter on Thursday night that he’s been invited to an LSU junior day.

Parker, a 6-foot, 170-pounder, led Whitehouse with 69 catches in 2012 and finished second on the team in receiving yards (976) and touchdown catches (9). Parker joined Texas Tech-bound senior Dylan Cantrell and fellow juniors Coleman Patterson and Jaylon Dews to give junior quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who is receiving a ton of recruiting attention himself, a fleet of receivers that helped the first-year signal caller throw for more than 3,800 yards, 46 touchdowns, and nine interceptions.

Repacing Cantrell’s 66 grabs for 1,396 yards and 15 touchdowns won’t be easy, but having Mahomes, Parker, Patterson, and Dews back will be a great place to start for whoever is Whitehouse’s new head football coach. Despite leading the Wildcats to the playoffs seven consecutive seasons, Randy McFarlin’s contract was not renewed, and Whitehouse ISD is the process of finding a replacement now.

Another Whitehouse junior to keep an eye on plays on the other side of the ball.

Linebacker Reggie Long has piled up junior day invitations, and Texas State is the latest to invite him. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Long is headed to Tulsa this weekend for a junior day event. Miami (Feb. 9), Washington State (Feb. 16), and Houston (TBD) have also invited Long, who plans to attend the Washington State junior day and hopes to make the Miami event.

Long, who has also received interest lately from Abilene Christian, finished his junior campaign with 80 tackles, six sacks, two interceptions, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and 12 quarterback pressures.
